From boutique hotels in Palm Springs and restaurants in Los Angeles to tech startups in Silicon Valley, California is home to some of the most unique small business around, employing more than 6.8 million people. But with more than 466,600 workplace injuries and 376 fatalities in 2016, there’s a need for small business owners to protect their employees and assets.
As the nation’s oldest social insurance program, workers’ compensation protects small business owners from being sued by an employee when an injury or illness happens. Workers’ comp insurance is required in California under California Labor Code Section 3700 if a small business has one or more employees. All current employees must be able to view the California Workers’ Compensation poster, and not informing employees about their rights in the workplace can result in lawsuits and fines.
Pie Insurance is excited to offer workers’ comp to California small businesses.
