Partial Wage Replacement

Employees who have suffered a compensable workplace injury and are taken off work by the authorized treating physician may be entitled to receive wage replacement benefits for the work time they miss.  The benefits and the eligibility terms are described below. 


Compensation Rates

Based on a variety of variables, the Tennessee Workers' Compensation Rates are adjusted depending on the date of injury. Rates are for weekly compensation, death benefits, funeral expenses, and medical benefits. View Comp Rates.


Protect your Rights

The right to receive workers’ compensation benefits does not stay open forever.  In most cases, the deadline to request the conference is one (1) year from the date the injury occurred; or, the date the last temporary disability benefits were paid or medical benefits were provided for the injury, whichever is latest.
