What is workers' compensation?

 
Workers’ compensation insurance — also called “workers’ comp” — is a type of business insurance that is designed to protect business owners in case an employee is injured or becomes ill on the job. It can also cover you if you work solo. Think of it as a band-aid that can help both the employer and employee cover the costs of:
  • Medical expenses
  • Death benefits
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent or temporary disability
  • Rehabilitation and retraining
 

What does workers' comp cover?

Hopefully, a work-related injury or illness only causes a temporary setback, but as a business owner, you must prepare for every possibility. Workers’ compensation could help cover expenses related to situations such as:

Employee Accident or Injury

Say that your employee slips and falls on the floor while cleaning your storefront. Workers’ comp can cover the cost of her medical expenses, as well as recoup lost wages while she recovers.

Employee Illness

Your employee falls ill as a result of paint exposure in a poorly ventilated room; workers’ comp could cover the cost of his treatment and lost wages.

Employee Disability

Imagine that your highly skilled employee has an accident while operating complex machinery. If he’s unable to work because of his resulting injury, workers’ comp can cover his wages and even the cost of retraining for a new job.

Repetitive Stress Injury

You’re a self-employed photographer who develops a chronic wrist injury. If you have opted to purchase workers’ compensation for yourself prior to getting hurt, the cost of your medical care could be covered.
