Colorado Workers Compensation Insurance Coverage for Small Business
If an on-the-job injury happens, workers comp kicks in to reimburse costs of medical care, rehabilitation, and lost wages for employees. For business owners, it covers the financial burden of lawsuits initiated by injured employees or their dependents. At its core, works comp insurance will:
- Pay for an employee’s medical treatment
- Replace lost wages if an injury requires time off work
- Secure the insured business and its assets
The process of securing works comp coverage differs depending on the state. Colorado law requires employers provide workers comp to their employees. Regulation information can be found through the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.
Aside from incidents occurring within the workplace, workers comp extends to anywhere employees are working within the capacity of their job. This coverage capacity is important to note, as traditionally a significant portion of workers comp claims are products of car accidents when employees are on the clock. Natural disasters, violence in the workplace, and occupational illnesses are also accounted for within a policy.
Remember, workers comp coverage is not included within a typical business owners policy (BOP). Instead, it’s marketed as a standalone policy.
