From hipster donut shops to small-batch whiskey distilleries, Texas is home to some of the most unique small business around, employing more than 4.4 million Texans. Texas is one of the best places to start a small business, but with more than 185,000 workplace injuries and 545 fatalities in 2016, there’s a need to protect your small business employees and assets.
Texas workers’ comp, although not required by law, protects small business owners from being sued by an employee when an injury or illness happens. Despite the ability to opt out of workers comp insurance, the majority of Texas business buy workers’ comp, covering 8 out of 10 Texas employees across industries like construction, retail, restaurant, hotel, auto repair, lawn care, grocery, janitorial, and manufacturing.
Pie is excited to be one of the insurance companies offering workers’ comp in Texas.
