If you are a corporate officer or sole proprietor in a non-construction business in Florida, you can choose to exempt yourself from required Workers’ Compensation coverage. In most other cases, workers compensation coverage is required for all employees.
In Florida, a sole proprietor in a non-construction business is not considered to be an employee and therefore is exempt from coverage. However, you can choose optional Workers' Compensation coverage as an employee.
CoverWallet can help you get required Workers' Compensation coverage as well as other essential insurance coverages. The Florida Workers' Compensation Joint Underwriting Association can also be an option. However, the FWCJUA limits its focus to Workers' Compensation coverage.
Workers' Compensation coverage in Florida provides several benefits for injured employees, including payment of medical expenses for doctor visits, surgery or hospital care, home nursing, and medications. If the employee qualifies, lost wages are often paid as well at a reduced rate. Rehabilitation is another offered benefit along with reemployment services if needed.
