The federal law that addresses workers’ compensation is the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), which provides workers’ compensation benefits to federal employees for employment-related injuries or illnesses.

In addition to FECA, each state has its own laws governing workers’ compensation for employees in the private sector. These laws vary from state to state in terms of coverage, benefits, and administration. Some states have specific acts named as “Workers’ Compensation Act” or similar, but they would not be titled “2009” as that year would not be relevant to the naming convention.

For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding workers’ compensation laws in a specific U.S. state, I recommend consulting the relevant state government’s labor department or a legal professional specializing in workers’ compensation law in that state.
