Rules vary by state, which makes it a bit confusing when discussing workers compensation coverage with an insurer who is not well-versed in the state’s statutes. Augmented and driven by local court decisions, individual states have different laws on the books, which result in different workers comp rules, regulations and requirements. Even the opportunity to purchase the insurance from a private company, as opposed to a state-run insurer, is regulated on a state-by-state basis. The only state that does not currently mandate workers comp coverage is Texas.
Local workers compensation rules apply to each branch of a business, no matter where the company is headquartered. In other words, a company headquartered in Montana must follow California’s rules for workers comp coverage when opening a branch in the Golden State. If a business anticipates regular travel to another state as one of the job duties that some workers will perform, it is possible to buy a policy that declares the other state as a potential work location. If the worker is hurt while at that location, the original business’ policy will cover the employee, even if there is a branch office with a different workers comp insurance policy for the site.
