Is work-related mental illness covered by workers' compensation?

Many Missouri workers suffer physical injuries while they are on duty, and it is the responsibility of employers to ensure no known safety hazards are present. Although not as common as physical injuries, a worker can suffer a work-related mental illness that may have severe financial consequences. Fortunately, psychological or mental illness is covered to some degree by workers' compensation as an occupational illness.

Missouri workers' compensation laws may include mental illness

Workers' compensation claims are usually a result of work-related accidents that result in injury. These injuries often hinder Missouri workers from performing their job duties. Now, a workers' compensation proposal is being reviewed that would not only cover physical injuries, but also mental illness.
