Louisiana is ranked among the top ten climates in the nation for starting a business, supporting its small business community through low operating costs, a skilled workforce, and a strong infrastructure. Louisiana banks, engineering corporations, and law firms have all won small business awards for their excellence, innovation, and growth.
Louisiana is home to a diverse small business population, employing more than 890,000 people. But with more than 35,000 workplace injuries and 95 fatal injuries in 2016, it’s critical for local small businesses to protect their employees and assets.
Louisiana workers’ comp protects small business owners from being sued by an employee when an injury or illness happens. Any employee working in Louisiana must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance, as workers’ comp covers medical bills and wage replacement for workplace injuries.
Pie Insurance is excited to offer workers’ comp coverage to small businesses in Louisiana.
