Who Is Responsible For Payment Of Workers’ Compensation Benefits To An Undocumented Worker?
The workers’ compensation insurance company for an undocumented worker’s employer is responsible for payment of benefits. Unfortunately, sometimes it is difficult to identify an undocumented worker’s employer. When the employer is identified, sometimes they do not have workers’ compensation coverage. It is not unusual for a big company to obtain work and then hire another company to do the job, who then hires another company to do the job, who then hires the undocumented alien to perform the work.
