A Florida Court has ruled that illegal aliens are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. This follows the acceptance of a majority of States to offer workers' compensation status to workers regardless of their immigration status and is in conformity with public policy and legislative intent.
The Court reasoned that the employer knew or should have known of the illegal status of the employee at the time of hiring then the employer is subsequently responsible to pay workers' compensation benefits following a work-related injury.
