Workers' Compensation - Does my job have to have workers compensation insurance?
In the vast majority of cases, your employer is required by state law to carry worker’s compensation insurance.
Exceptions to this rule come primarily in the form of very small companies. If your employer has fewer than four employees, they are not required by the state to carry worker’s compensation insurance. All employers in the construction industry with one or more employees are required to carry workers' compensation insurance.
Your workers' compensation insurance carrier’s name and phone number should be readily accessible at your worksite. If it is not, your employer is required to provide this information to you at your request.
