Workers Compensation Information
Workers’ compensation insurance helps protect employers from lawsuits if an employee is injured or becomes ill in a work-related incident. It also helps provide financial protection for employees who need medical care or must take time off of work to recuperate after a covered incident.
What Does Workers Compensation Cover?
If a covered employee suffers a work-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation insurance helps provide the following coverage:
· Liability coverage
· Medical care and medical treatment
· Death benefits
· Disability benefits
· Lost wages for time off
· Rehabilitation or retraining benefits
Your worker’s compensation coverage may provide additional benefits. This list is not all-inclusive. Talk with your agent to understand the specifics of your company’s workers’ compensation policy.
Why Have Workers Compensation Insurance?
Without workers’ compensation insurance coverage, your business could face financial losses if one of your employees becomes ill or is injured in a work-related accident. Your agent can help determine whether workers’ compensation insurance is appropriate for your organization.
Do I Need Workers Compensation Insurance?
Depending on the laws in your state, you may be required to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Michigan businesses must carry workers’ compensation insurance if they have three or more employees or if one employee works more than 35 hours per week for more than 13 weeks. These rules apply to public and private Michigan employers.
There are some exceptions to workers’ compensation insurance requirements in Michigan, including:
· Family members working for a relative
· Independent contractors hired by a business
· Sole proprietors who are self-employed
· Domestic workers
· Partners and officers of a corporation or partnership
Laws are subject to change, so be sure to check with your insurance agent for an up-to-date overview of Michigan’s workers’ compensation coverage requirements.
