As a business owner, you do everything you can to protect your employees from potential dangers, but do you have worker’s compensation protection? Most business owners understand that worker’s compensation is important, but did you know that if you have employees, it is required by law to have coverage?
Worker’s compensation is a type of insurance coverage that protects your employees. Policies can provide coverage for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income/wages
- Rehabilitation costs
- Death benefits
- And more…
For anyone who is classified as an employee, it is required by law to provide them with worker’s compensation coverage. Employees can opt out of coverage, but if you do not offer it, you can be fined up to $2,500 a day and can face a Class D felony charge with a mandatory minimum one year prison sentence. Termination of an employee who is injured while working and/or who files a worker’s compensation claim is also illegal. As a rule, a company with five or more employees is mandated to purchase workers compensation insurance to cover medical expenses, permanent disability, and a portion of the injured employee’s wages.
Having worker’s compensation coverage can save you and your business from costly lawsuits and employee issues. Worker’s Compensation Insurance protects your business AND your employees, who are oftentimes a huge part of the framework of a company.
