In North Carolina, employers that have at least 3 regular employees, either full or part-time, are required by law to purchase Workers’ Compensation insurance. This insurance coverage helps ensure that any employee that is forced to miss time at work due to an injury or illness can receive the benefits they need to compensate for their lost income.
Unfortunately, thousands of employers in North Carolina do not abide by this important law.
Receiving Workers’ Compensation benefits after a serious workplace injury can be a long and difficult process. However, that process becomes even more frustrating when an employee learns that their employer does not have the Workers’ Compensation insurance that is required by law.
Recent estimates show that up to 30,000 employers in North Carolina do not have Workers’ Compensation insurance. That is an alarming number of employers, which impacts many injured workers in need of Workers’ Comp benefits.
