June 26, 2023

There’s only so much you can control when running a company. And despite keeping a safe environment for your employees, accidents can happen. Workers’ compensation insurance is there for you for the things you can’t control.  

Generally, businesses with at least one part-time or full-time employee must get workers' compensation insurance. While it might be a “have to have” in your state, it’s important for business owners to understand the benefits of having a workers’ compensation policy.  

In its broadest sense, workers’ compensation insurance helps your employees if they get a work-related injury or illness, which in turn helps them return to work. Specifically, workers compensation insurance is a win-win for both parties: 

For employees, it provides: 

  • Medical coverage  
  • Disability benefits 
  • Lost wage replacement 
  • Psychological rehab  
  • Death benefit 

For employers, it can provide: 

  • Fraudulent claims prevention support  
  • Safety resources and expertise available to reduce workplace accidents 
  • Investigative team for claims 

Some of these employer benefits are unique to the insurance carrier you choose. Don’t put your business or employees at risk, get a workers’ compensation policy today.
