Who needs Workers Comp Insurance in Florida?
It is recommended that a business owner carry Workers Comp Insurance if they have as few as one single employee. According to Florida state law, any company based under the construction industry is required to have Workers Comp Insurance coverage as soon as one employee is hired. However, non-construction companies must carry Florida Workers Comp Insurance as soon as they have four or more employees.
In addition, there are some instances where you may be Workers Comp exempt. Therefore, you will want to check with the state to find out if coverage is mandatory for your business category.
Operating without the required Workers Comp Insurance in Florida puts you at risk for civil penalties. In other words, you or your business could be subject to a stop-work order that requires you to cease all operations until your business complies with the law AND all penalties are paid.
If you choose not to comply with a stop-work order, the action could result in criminal charges. However, as long as your coverage is compliant with the state law, you can avoid penalties and your employees who receive benefits can’t sue you or your business for injuries or lost wages.
