Illinois is home to more than 1.2 million small businesses, employing more than 2.5 million individuals. The Prairie State is a source of entrepreneurial talent with small businesses—ranging from trendy barbershops and specialty ice cream parlors, to beauty salons, auto repair shops, and restaurants.
Illinois workers’ compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides medical, disability, survivor, burial, and rehabilitation benefits to employees who are injured or killed due to a work-related injury.
The state of Illinois played a large role in the history of workers’ comp laws due to the 259 men and boys who lost their lives in the 1909 coal mine fire in Cherry, Illinois. Today, Illinois businesses with at least one employee must have workers’ compensation insurance, and failure to provide employees with workers’ comp coverage is considered a felony.
Pie Insurance is proud to provide workers’ compensation insurance to Illinois’ small businesses.
