Can babysitters and nannies get workers comp?

Babysitters and nannies can be at risk for many of the same injuries facing teachers. For example, teachers sometimes suffer an injury while breaking up a fight or can hurt themselves slipping on a floor while rushing to respond to an emergency. There are also some dangers that babysitters may face more than teachers do. For example, sitters can be more at risk of dog bites from the client's pet.

The importance of choosing a good doctor

In Louisiana, workers injured on the job can choose their own doctor for treatment, although your employer and/or insurer may not necessarily want you to. For example, your employer might give you a printout of doctors it has "approved."

Why teachers might not report an injury

You can suffer an injury on the job in all types of professions and qualify for worker's compensation. Not all workers report their injuries, though, and as the United Federation of Teachers points out, those who work in schools and who sustain an injury on the job should immediately let a supervisor know about it. Furthermore, the injured parties should go see a doctor when possible.
