Workers Comp insurance covers employees of your business who are injured on the job. It can pay for medical costs, lost wages and death of an employee. Part-time employees typically need to be included in the policy and if you work with independent or subcontractors make sure that they have their own insurance or are included in the policy. States classify an employee as an individual who is hired to perform a task or service at the manager’s direction. If you have questions about who to include in the policy, including exemptions available, please speak with an agent or broker.
Workers Comp insurance is a separate requirement from liability or health insurance. Neither health nor liability will cover injuries of employees on the job. Having insurance means that a business can pay for medical care, lost wages and death benefits. Most states will require that you purchase a policy. Currently the only state not regulating Workers Comp is Texas.
