North Carolina requires Workers' Compensation coverage for most employers that employ three or more employees. However, sole proprietors, members of LLCs, and partners are not automatically counted as employees and can choose to be covered at their discretion.
In North Carolina, Workers' Compensation insurance pays for approved medical treatment that may be required due to a work-related injury or occupational illness. North Carolina Workers' Compensation also provides income replacement for lost wages due to temporary disability caused by a workplace injury. Job retraining may be available if the injured worker is unable to return to their previous job.
Employers in North Carolina can purchase Workers' Compensation coverage through agents or brokers or through online portals like CoverWallet, which can also provide additional insurance policy types for your business. North Carolina does not have a state fund for Workers' Compensation but the state does provide a high-risk pool which can help to place coverage for high-risk businesses.
