Do you have Workers Comp Insurance?

As an Employer, even if you have only (1) one employee, you are required to carry workers? compensation insurance to cover that employee in case of a work related injury. While many Employers use State Fund (State Compensation Insurance Fund) there are numerous Insurance companies that provide competitive and often better rates than State Fund. So, you may be able to save yourself some money by talking with an Insurance broker who can obtain some quotes for you.  Failure to maintain workers compensation, if you have employees, can be a criminal offense, result in a fine by the State of up to $10,000 and the issuance of a Stop Order requiring the Company to stop all work until it provides the State with proof of Insurance coverage. Failure to observe the stop order is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for up to 60 days, or by a fine of up to $10,000, or both (Labor Code Section 3700.5). In addition, if an employee makes a claim and you are uninsured, your Company could be responsible for all the employees medical expenses, loss of income and other related damages. While the Uninsured Employers Fund (UEF) may pay the employees claim initially, the UEF will seek reimbursement from the Emplyer, plus interest and penalties. So, if you have any employees, make sure you carry workers? compensation insurance.
