One of the signs of a growing business is the need to add employees to assist in day-to-day operations. As a business adds employees, it is obligated to protect them should they be injured while on the job performing their duties. Enter Workers Comp.
Additionally, a Workers Compensation Policy is designed to step in and protect the business if an individual or business is hired and their workers compensation is cancelled, expired or otherwise fails to respond. This further emphasizes the reason that a Workers Compensation Policy is necessary for every business, large or small.
The State of Florida requires Workers Compensation be carried by businesses in most circumstances. Even so, it is important to understand that even if the carrying of workers compensation is not “required” by law, a business is still responsible to its employees for injuries sustained on the job.
A Florida Workers Compensation Policy protects your business by providing coverage to employees for bodily injury caused by accident or disease. Policy benefits include payment of medical and medical related expenses, loss of wages, disability income and others.
