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 businesses around, employing more than 6.8 million people.
Unfortunately, with more than 466,500 workplace injuries in 2018, small businesses must help protect injured workers and file workers’ compensation claims when necessary. Workers’ compensation in California helps protect small businesses and can also help cover the costs of medical treatment when an employee gets injured in the workplace. Managed by the state, workers’ comp in California provides pay and medical benefits to employees who have a work-related injury or illness. Under California Labor Code Section 3700, California businesses must have workers’ comp insurance if they have one or more employees.
Pie Insurance is proud to provide workers’ compensation insurance to California’s small businesses.
