DR. ENGLISH: Workin' It

from GBA

Which is (or are) correct? A) workman's compensation? B) workmen's compensation? C) worker's compensation? D) workers' compensation? Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock (for some geoprofessionals, that could be research!), you know that A and B are incorrect, having been eliminated because of what some might call "political correctness" or PC, but which others regard as gender bias. "Worker" applies to all people who work, regardless of their gender or anything else. But is it a singular worker or the "workers" plural? After all, it was "workman's compensation," was it not? Yes, it was! Still, the answer is D: workers' compensation. Next issue: Is it A) draftsman? B) draftsperson? C) drafter? C'mon. more
