Coverage that safeguards your business.
Workers’ compensation insurance, or simply workers’ comp, is not just a legal requirement in some states. It’s an investment in the safety and security of your employees. And without it, your business could face expensive lawsuits. Fortunately, you can safeguard your business by providing workers’ comp insurance to your employees.
Required by most states.
The precise rules vary from state to state, but the general rule is that your business must take out workers’ compensation insurance for employees that pays out if they are injured at work. This ensures that should an employee be injured on the job, they will be covered. In addition, retaining skilled and experienced employees is important for any type of business, so having the proper coverage in place helps your business in the long-term.
What does workers’ compensation insurance cover?
As a business owner, knowing the risks of injury is one thing, but understanding what workers’ comp covers is equally important. In principle, the workers’ comp payouts will cover medical bills, care costs and a portion of any lost wages. Plus, in the worst-case scenario, workers’ compensation insurance will cover funeral costs and death benefits.
