Can I claim workers compensation for an illness on the job? Probably not, because in Wisconsin, if you’re sick on the job, that’s why you have vacation time or paid time off. Look at your handbook as to what that means. If you’re injured on the job, then workers comp will pay for those damages, for those medical expenses.
One of the only times you can file a workers compensation claim for an illness on a job is if the conditions of where you work made you sick. So the air, the lights, the general condition of the facility in which you work, if that created the illness, then you can file a worker’s compensation claim.
