As a business owner, you do everything you can to protect your employees from potential dangers, but do you have workers compensation insurance protection in place? Most business owners understand that workers compensation is important, but did you know that if you have employees, it is required by law for most businesses to have workers’ compensation insurance?
Workers compensation is a type of insurance coverage that protects your employees in case of injury or disease during the course of employment. Policies can provide coverage for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income/wages
- Rehabilitation costs
- Death benefits
- And more…
For anyone who is classified as an employee (part-time or full-time), it is required by law to provide them with workers compensation insurance coverage. If you do not provide this coverage, you can be fined up to $2,500 a day and can face a Class D felony charge with a mandatory minimum one year prison sentence.
Termination of an employee who is injured while working and/or who files a workers compensation claim is also illegal. As a rule, a company with one or more employees is mandated to purchase workers compensation insurance to cover medical expenses, permanent disability, and a portion of the injured employee’s wages.
Having a safe workplace is not only good practice but it can save you money on your workers’ compensation insurance policy. Your annual insurance premiums are messured by the number or losses your company has. This is then reported to your carrier and is called your Experience Modification Factor or x-mod for short. The higher your x-mod the high your insurance premiums will be. The lower your x-mod, will result in an insurance premium savings. If you have a high x-mod, you should consider reviewing and changing your company culture on how it views and deals with safety.
