Existing workers' compensation law generally requires employers to secure the payment of workers' compensation, including medical treatment, for injuries incurred by their employees that arise out of, and in the course of, employment. Existing law provides that each inmate of a state penal or correctional institution shall be entitled to workers' compensation benefits for injury arising out of, and in the course of, assigned employment and for the death of the inmate if the injury proximately causes the death, subject to specified conditions. Existing law provides that whenever a person confined in a county jail, industrial farm, road camp, or city jail suffers injuries or death while working in the prevention or suppression of forest, brush, or grass fires, he or she shall be considered to be an employee of the county or city, respectively, for purposes of workers' compensation. This bill would provide that each inmate of a county, city, or city and county jail, industrial farm, or road camp shall be entitled to workers' compensation benefits for injury arising out of, and in the course of, assigned employment and for the death of the inmate if the injury proximately causes the death, subject to specified conditions.
