WORKMANS COMP INSURANCE
By law, every employer in the state of California is required to provide workman's compensation insurance (or workman's comp) for their employees. Even if you have just one employee, you must maintain workers' compensation coverage.
Why do I need workers' comp insurance?
Failure to carry California workman's comp insurance is a criminal offense. If an employee gets sick or injured because of work and you are not insured, you are responsible for all related bills, plus severe fines and possibly jail time for violating the law. State-issued penalties can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars, plus you could be subject to a civil action lawsuit from any employee sick or hurt while you are illegally uninsured.
Besides being a legal requirement of employers in California, it's just a good idea to have this coverage. As an employer, you are held liable for the occupational injury, sickness, or death suffered by anyone you hire. And for just the same reason that you need general liability insurance, regardless of who is at fault, the cost of a defense can be devastating to your business.
