Does Every Employer have to carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

Does Every Employer have to carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

No. State law generally provides exceptions for very small companies. In addition, self-employed people and independent contractors are generally not covered under Workers’ Compensation law. Federal employees are covered under the federal Workers’ Compensation system. But for employers that are legally required to carry insurance, failure to carry it could result in penalties from the state, as well as lawsuits from injured employees.

Thank you Daggett Shuler. After dealing with workers comp for a year on my own after my injury, I was advised to call a lawyer. I’m glad I called Daggett Shuler.
Special Thanks to Michael and Sheila. From the beginning your hard work got the approval for the medical care I needed. Answering all my questions and keeping me informed every step of the way. The staff went above and beyond throughout my case. I highly recommend Daggett Shuler.
