Workers Compensation
Workers compensation coverage covers lost wages and medical treatment resulting from an employee’s work-related injury or illness. It also covers services needed to help an employee recover and return to work. This is the law in all 50 states. As soon as you have your first non-owner employee, it's time to get Workers Comp insurance. Not having this insurance can lead to hefty fines, and of course, it means the business has to pay for any workplace injury claims.
