Employers have responsibilities for providing a safe and just workplace for their employees. Although state laws vary, most employers are required to purchase insurance for their employees to cover Worker’s Compensation claims.
Generally, companies with fewer than 4 employees are not required to carry Worker’s Compensation insurance. Check with your employer regarding your employee rights and insurance coverage.
If an employer does not comply with Worker’s Compensation claims, this may result in the following penalties:
- Personal liability
- Lawsuit on behalf of employee
- Possible criminal prosecution
