The Massachusetts Workers' Compensation system is in place to make sure that workers are protected by insurance if they are injured on the job or contract a work-related illness.

Under this system, employers are required by Massachusetts General Laws c. 152, § 25A to provide workers' compensation (WC) insurance coverage to all their employees. This insurance pays for any reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to the injury or illness and also pays partial compensation for lost wages after the first five calendar days of total or partial disability.

The Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA) is the agency responsible for administering the workers' compensation law in Massachusetts.

Employers in Massachusetts have certain obligations under this law.
