Florida’s workers’ compensation system helps provide important benefits to more than 448,000 small businesses. These benefits may include providing medical payments, lost wages, and disability benefits to employees who are injured on the job. The system may also provide benefits to the dependents of employees who die due to a work-related incident.
In the Sunshine State, employers in non-construction industries must carry workers’ compensation insurance if they employ four or more workers. However, for employers in the construction industry, workers’ compensation insurance is required if they employ just one or more workers. Small business owners should abide by state law in order to avoid paying fines—but more importantly—to protect their businesses and provide care for their employees.
Pie Insurance is proud to provide affordable workers’ compensation to small businesses in Florida.
