Workers' Compensation varies from state to state, so you really need to check what your local state law allows. However, as a general rule, if you are injured on the job and …DO NOT file for Workers' Compensation benefits, the "exclusive remedy" rule that bars your bringing a private tort claim does not apply. Employers are keen to have employees report ANY workplace incident right away. This does help documents when and where such accidents happen, but it also ends an important legal right the employee might have available to them. There is no duty to disclose what legal rights a worker is surrendering when they are filing a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits. In incidents where serious injuries are sustained, a worker could easily lose valuable legal rights by applying for Workers' Compensation benefits before consulting legal counsel.

Precise requirements of workers compensation insurance are governed by state law. As a general rule, an employer is required to cover only genuine, common law employees. Many… states use a rule to determine employee status based upon whether the employer has the right to hire and fire and to direct the worker's activities, hours, and other factors. If so, the person is likely to be an employee. If not, the person is likely to be an independent contractor (and issued a 1099 for tax purposes). Workers compensation insurance is required for the benefit of actual employees, not as to independent contractors. Note, though, that there are rules imposed by state law as to how many employees and employer must have before being required to maintain workers compensation insurance.

Worker's compensation insurance rates vary depending on several different factors. The state you conduct business in, the type of work you do, and your businesses claims histo…ry all factor in the the rate you pay for coverage. For example a roofer in Florida would pay a rate of 17% of the employees payroll. So for every $100 in payroll the premium would be $17.01 based on the state minimum premium requirement. That same roofer working in Georgia would cost their employer $32.94 per $100 in payroll. The higher the risk of injury involved in the work being performed, the higher the worker's comp rate. The best bet for a business seeking worker's compensation insurance is to consult an agent. Employee classification is essential in properly calculating a worker's comp rate. Expert counsel is the only way to insure that your business is coded properly.
