Workers’ Compensation Insurance – An Important Part of Your Overall Coverage Plan

Workers’ compensation insurance is a federally mandated, state regulated program that protects your business if an employee suffers a work-related injury.  If your business has non-family member employees (even 1), most states will require that you carry workers’ compensation coverage.  Even if workers’ comp isn’t a requirement in your sate, it’s still a good business decision.  Workers’ compensation coverage is designed to protect you and your employees in the event of a workplace injury.  Benefits include:
  • Employees can recover most of their lost wages
  • Employees medical expenses will be covered
  • In the event of an employee lawsuit, workers’ comp will help cover legal fees
  • In a worst-case scenario, workers’ comp will provide death benefits for the employees’ family

Something else to keep in mind, even if you offer health insurance to your employees, this coverage doesn’t cover a work-related injury or illness.  You’ll need worker’s compensation insurance to protect you and your employees.
