In 1911, New Jersey passed the New Jersey Workers' Compensation Act.  The law and its amendments require an employer to provide medical treatment and temporary wages to employees who are injured in the course of their employment. Most injured workers are also entitled to financial compensation for their permanent injuries. Spouses and dependents may also be entitled to compensation for injury or illness resulting in a worker's death. A Judge of Compensation at District Offices located throughout the State reviews and must approve all awards.
