Generally workman’s compensation means insurance should be given to an employee getting injured while doing his job. In short term it is known as “on the job insurance“. Thus the insurance offers benefits to the employees for his work related injuries and illnesses. It is an effective process of getting an injured person back to his work place as soon as possible.
Which person is eligible for getting this insurance benefits?
If you are running an industry other than construction, and also having 4 or more employees working under you full time or part time, then you need to carry the worker’s compensation coverage. An exempted corporate officer should not be enlisted under the group of employees.
If you own a construction industry and having 1 or more employees including yourself, then you should carry Florida workman’s comp coverage. An exempted corporate officers or the member of LLC should not come under employee group so that they can’t enjoy the benefits of workers compensation insurance.
If you own a state or local government, then you are bound to carry worker’s comp coverage for the welfare of your employees.
