Workers’ compensation is required in most states. Workers’ compensation benefits are made available to all employees if they are inured as a result of workplace injury or illness. Workers’ compensation insurance protects employers from claims resulting from injuries to employees. It protects your business from lawsuits and provides employees with compensation for on-the-job injuries. Independent contractors are not entitled to benefits, unless they have their own plans. About 13 people die each day as a result of on the job injuries.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
