If an employee is injured on the job or develops an employment-related illness, they are likely eligible to collect
workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation insurance is required by regulation in most states when you
have W2 employees. It applies to bodily injury by accident or disease
resulting from or caused by occupational
hazards. The policy will pay benefits required of the insured by state workers' compensation laws.
Employer liability policies also provide coverage that protects the company in the event that an employee
alleges that the employer's negligence or failure to provide a safe workplace was the cause of the employee's
injury or illness.
It is often difficult to find an insurance company interested in providing
your workers' compensation coverage. In many cases, you are required to provide this benefit to your employees. Your
