Workers Compensation Insurance
Workers compensation insurance protects your business and employees from the cost of work-related injuries, illness, and even death. For business owners, it can help reduce the possibility of an employee lawsuit.
Workplace injuries happen even in the safest of workspaces. If an employee gets sick or hurt on the job, you are responsible for paying for their treatment, even if they have health insurance. During the time that the worker is unable to work as a result of an injury or illness, they are also entitled to a portion of their regular wages. Workers compensation covers these costs. You would be responsible for paying for these out-of-pocket costs if you do not have insurance.
Most states require businesses to purchase workers compensation coverage for their employees. Even when it is not required by law, these policies provide important protection against medical expenses and employee lawsuits related to workplace injuries. Medical expenses and legal fees will fall on your company if you do not have workers’ compensation insurance, and most states impose high fines for noncompliance.
