Worker's Compensation

Disability Insurance
All employees, by State law, are provided with Worker’s Compensation Disability Insurance (N.J.S.A. 34:15-1 et seq). The Worker’s Compensation law seeks to ensure employees who are injured on-the-job receive proper care and benefits while at the same time protecting employers from minor or subjective complaints. The County provides for the cost of this coverage for Gloucester County employees. Gloucester County provides paid disability leave to employees who are injured on-the-job.
