Injuries at Work:
Bureau of Workers' Compensation

The Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) administers the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Law, assisting both employees and employers in minimizing the impact of work-related injuries. The Bureau’s programs are designed to provide timely and effective services that help injured employees return to their health and jobs as quickly as possible. By informing all parties of their rights and responsibilities, these programs promote a better understanding of the benefits and requirements provided by Tennessee law.

Our mission is to minimize the impact of work-related injuries through processes that are fair, efficient, and accessible to all participants in the Tennessee workers' compensation system.
