Time to take some note on Workers Comp in California with PIE

What is Workers Compensation?

According to Nationwide [which is not affiliated with PIE] Workers Compensation: “provides medical and wage benefits to people who are injured or become ill at work. The coverage is mandated by each state and the wage and medical benefits vary by state. Workers’ compensation is considered a social insurance because it relies on a social contract between management and labor, wherein exchange for purchasing workers’ compensation insurance, business owners are protected from civil suits from their workers who become injured on the job. “

“Workers’ compensation is a government-mandated system that pays monetary benefits to workers who become injured or disabled in the course of their employment.” says Investopedia.

The California Department of Industrial Relations states that “California employers are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance, even if they have only one employee. “

Does my Business Need Workers Comp Insurance?

As stated above “employer are required by law” to have workers comp even with just “one employee.” There are several instances when this might not be the case.
