All Employers are required by law to carry Workers Compensation insurance, yet many do not. When that happens, the Employees think they have no right to benefits but that is not true.
All Alaska employees are insured in case they are injured at work. The State of Alaska has a Guarantee Fund which pays the same benefits to injured workers which they would get if their Employer carried insurance. In order to collect these benefits, the Employee must file a Claim with the Alaska Workers Compensation Board.
