Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation for Home Health Aides

FAQ: What if the home health aide agency that I work for calls me an independent contractor? Do I have any options?

You might. Although New Jersey Workers’ Compensation only provides benefits for employees, many home caregivers are classified improperly and your agency may have classified you as an independent contractor to save on taxes or employment benefits.

In certain circumstances, we can also help you pursue a claim for personal injury based on the usual personal injury laws. In these cases, our lawyers can begin a claim with the homeowner’s insurance policy for compensation.
