If you had an employee covered under a group policy (less than 5), do you have to provide Cobra insurance to the employee until they find other coverage if they leave the company?

You shouldn't be treated differently from any other employee as respects healthcare. Contact an attorney in your area to learn about your rights if you feel your coverage was cancelled without proper notice or if you have been treated differently from other employees.

The employer, the insurance company, your state board of insurance and your state's workers' compensation bureau are all good to contact about Work Comp insurance fraud.

By law, it's optional for sole proprietors. Reality can be different though. In the construction trades most general contractors will require any subs who are sole proprietors to have workmans comp. This is what their insurance companies require. If a sub doesn't have workmans comp the insurance company adds their wages to the gc's bill.

It depends on what the employee benefit plan provides. You need to check the employee benefit handbook.

Yes it is a workmans comp if he was scheduled to come in or he had an appointment. Massachusetts Yes it is a workmans comp if he was scheduled to come in or he had an appointment. Massachusetts Answer #2 You better check with workman's comp. I know of a case where a fellow employee fell in the bathroom at work and was denied payments because it was not considered "work related". In this particular case, the company turned it in as workman's comp but it was refused.

The employee, driving a company car, intoxicated and on the way to work!! This has to be the most ... ... ... The employee will be terminated no doubt, and will be charge with causing the accident, and will face a possible lawsuit by the other party. In this case, the company insurance carrier will NOT pay out a dime. Negligence on the part of an employee is not usually covered in anybody's insurance policy.

User Avatar

In most cases, the company's insurance carrier will pay for damages, as long as the fault causing the accident was not caused by the employee. The employee here is representing the company in this case - if the employee is charged with negligent driving and was cited for causing the accident, the company insurance carrier will most likely pay, but will seek restitution from the employee. Could get into a real sticky situation.

Key person life insurance is coverage on the life of a key employee and payable to the employer upon that employee's death. The purpose is to protect the company from the financial loss associated with the loss of the employee. Since the employee in no way benefits from a key person life insurance policy, there are no tax consequences to the employee.

actually no us taxes go to pay for workmans compinsation. this is paid by your employer. if your company does not do this for a full time employee, you can contact osha and let them know;however, your job may be gone after this as some employers simply can't or will not fund this insurance.

Any employer that does not have WC insurance is liable for employee med costs for workplace injuries PLUS damage lawsuits. Those with WC insurance can never be sued for employee injuries.

First. My answers are for U.S. Employees ONLY. If you're a 1099 employee and you work in any setting, You are covered by Workman's Comp. If you work for a company and they pay you 1099, but you work for them, same place every day, etc, they MUST carry Workmans Comp insurance to cover you. Now there are a couple of exceptions. For instance you are, or work for ABC cleaning company. If you submit a bill or a bill is submitted on your behalf to garner payment, then it is the bill generators responsability to cover you with Workmans Comp Insurance. If the employer informes you he does and will not carry this type of insurace, and you agree and sign off and are compensated for said lack of coverage, then your "employer" need not carry Workmans Comp Insurance on you. If you want complete details of who and what coverages need to be carried go to Google.com and search Workmans Comp rules & regulations for YOUR STATE or Country, as all states/countries vary a small amount.

Well, you say 'procrastinating,' but your question is not really answerable, and, coming from an employee, impertinent. Regardless of whether the company driver is actually driving for an insurance company--doubtful--or not, they have 'comprehensive' commercial insurance; 'uninsured motorist' insurance is just a way to rephrase 'comprehensive' insurance for those who might not grasp the term.

Obviously they can insure their employees at reduced premia compared with premia taken from the general public.It all depends on the policies in question of the Insurance Company and is not obligatory.

User Avatar

Yes, Your Credit will be important in determining your risk factor for any commercial policy. You can still buy the coverage with poor credit but you pay a higher premium.

Fidelity Insurance is also referred to as crime insurance. It protects a company in the event of a loss of money for multiple reasons from burglary to embezzlement. There are generally two types of insurance- employee dishonesty and money and security coverage. Employee dishonesty covers the company in the event that an employee steals in any way shape or form. Money and security covers losses outside of business personnel such as burglary, destruction, or disappearance.
