Orlando Florida Workers Compensation Insurance

Workers compensation insurance pays benefits to your employees if they are injured while on the job. Coverage includes employees’ medical bills, vocational rehabilitation, a portion of lost wages, and death benefits. Coverage amounts are set by the state, so workers compensation benefits are the same for every company within Florida.

By law, in Florida you must have workers compensation insurance, if:

  • You have four (4) or more full/part-time employees
  • You engage in the construction industry and employs one (1) or more part/full-time employees must also carry workers compensation insurance.
  • You are a state or local government agency
  • You are a farmer with more than five (5) regular employees and/or twelve (12) or more additional workers for seasonal agricultural labor lasting thirty (30) days or more
  • If you are an out-of-state construction employer with one (1) or more part or full-time employees in Florida

 

Even if workers compensation is not mandatory for your business, it’s still a good idea. Protect yourself now, before it’s too late.
