A quick definition of compensation:

Term: Compensation

Definition: Compensation is the money you get paid for doing a job or for something bad that happened to you. If you get hurt while working, you might get compensation to help you pay for your medical bills and other things you need. This is called workers' compensation. It's a way to help you without having to go to court.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Compensation refers to the payment or reward given to an individual for the work or services they have provided. It can also refer to the monetary award given to someone who has suffered harm or loss.

For example, when an employee works for a company, they receive compensation in the form of a salary or wages. In the event of an injury or illness caused by work, workers' compensation laws provide benefits to the employee to cover medical expenses and lost wages.

Another example of compensation is when a person receives damages in a lawsuit for harm suffered due to someone else's actions. This compensation can cover medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.

These examples illustrate how compensation is a form of payment or reward for work or services performed, or for harm suffered.
