Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act


The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions, administered by the U. S. Department of Labor's Employment Standards Administration, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs, provide medical benefits, compensation for lost wages, and rehabilitation services to employees who are injured during the course of employment or contract an occupational disease related to employment. Survivor benefits also are provided if the work-related injury causes the employee's death. This provides employment-injury and occupational-disease protection to approximately 500,000 workers who are injured or contract occupational diseases occurring on the navigable waters of the United States, or in adjoining areas, and for certain other classes of workers covered by extensions of this Act. These benefits are paid directly by an authorized self-insured employer or through an authorized insurance carrier or in particular circumstances, by a Special Fund administered directly by the Division of Longshore Compensation. In addition to longshore, harbor, and other maritime workers, it also covers a variety of other employees through the following extensions to the Act
