Generally, workers compensation insurance is required under the laws of your state for most employers. SFI Group, Inc. agents are trained in identifying proper class codes for workers so our clients are not charged too much for improper class codes. Being written under the wrong class codes can create serious coverage nightmares for you. Not having the proper endorsements can mean severe penalties to you before a claim is paid.
State law usually requires employers to carry this coverage for their employees. This same statute usually defines for the employer, what is considered an employee. Remember, just because you do not withhold taxes from a paycheck, does not mean Workers Compensation insurance premiums will not be due to the carrier for those workers.
