How much is catering Workers’ Compensation insurance?

Workers’ compensation insurance costs 43% of our customers between $28 and $62 on average per month.    

Workers’ compensation insurance helps to pay for medical bills and lost wages if an employee suffers an injury on the job. 

Workers’ compensation coverage makes it possible for injured employees to take the time they need to recover by helping to pay for medical expenses and lost wages.

Employer liability insurance (ELI) provides additional protection for instances in which the employee decides to sue you for a workplace injury. This is in addition to the medical payments already provided by workers’ compensation. For example, an employee falls off scaffolding because the employer didn’t maintain the safety harness and the employee decides to sue for pain and suffering based on the employer’s negligence.

While in most states workers’ compensation policies include employer liability, in North Dakota, Ohio, Washington and Wyoming it can be purchased as a stop-gap coverage.

Note that the amount you can expect to pay for workers’ comp depends on how many employees you have, your payroll, how your employees are classified as well as your industry.
