Workers’ compensation provides insurance to employees who are injured on the job. This type of insurance provides wage replacement and medical benefits to those who are injured while working. In exchange for these benefits, the employee gives up his rights to sue his employer for the incident.
As a business owner, it is very important to have workers’ compensation insurance because it protects yourself and your company from legal complications. State laws will vary, but all require you to have workers’ compensation if you have W2 employees. Penalties for non-compliance can be very stiff.
