First Workmen’s Compensation Law in 1911
Wisconsin became the first state to have an operating workmen’s compensation law in 1911. This law provided financial security for workers injured on the job. By 1948, all of the then-48 U.S. states had passed such laws. Alaska and Hawaii had workmen’s compensation laws when they joined the Union. 
 
Today, workmen’s compensation provides pay and medical help for people injured while working, and also provides pensions for their dependents in cases where workers are killed.
