Nevada may be known for its famous landscapes and glitzy Las Vegas hotels, but the Silver State is home to more than the Hoover Dam, Lake Tahoe, and the Vegas Strip.
From Las Vegas to Reno or Elko, Nevada provides small businesses with many tools and resources to start up, develop, and grow. The Small Business Association in Nevada gives small businesses access to a variety of services, from access to capital to workforce development programs.
Nevada’s small businesses employ more than 474,000 people, accounting for 42% of the state’s private workforce. With more than 40,000 workplace injuries and 32 fatalities across all industries in 2017, small businesses need to make sure they are protecting their employees and assets with workers’ comp coverage.
If you have employees working in Nevada, your small business is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ comp covers work-related injuries and illnesses regardless of fault.
