Let’s Talk About . . . Workers’ Comp

There are some big words in workers’ compensation.  To help everyone understand those words, DWC has created a glossary of terms with definitions in plain language. For example, one of our favorites:
Malinger – When an injured employee pretends to be sick or have an injury worse than it is to collect benefits longer than necessary.

Please let us know if you think of any alternate definitions for DWC’s workers’ compensation terms or any other terms that should be included.
