What is Workers' Comp Insurance?
If you are a business owner in California with employees, you will want to understand your obligations as it pertains to carrying Workers' Compensation insurance. Basically, if you have employees, you need to have Workers' Comp insurance. This will cover your employee(s) if they are injured on the job and need coverage for wage loss or medical needs related to said work injury.
As explained in Entrepreneur's "Workers' Compensation 101" online article, most states:
...require employers to purchase an insurance policy [in order] to handle their statutory obligations to workers who are injured or made ill due to a workplace exposure.
