Can all employees get benefits through the Virginia workers’ compensation system?

No, not everyone is covered under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act. However, most workers are covered. In fact, the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission estimates that roughly 98 percent of employees in Virginia are covered. If you're unsure whether you are covered, consider contacting our firm, or visit the Workers' Compensation Commission web site here: http://www.vwc.state.va.us/portal/vwc-website.
