Who is covered by workers compensation? When workers get hurt or sick at work, they can get money. If you are an employee, the company will pay for this. And if you are a contractor, you might be covered by workers’ comp too. The rules for this depend on your state’s laws. You should find out before you start work whether or not your state requires workers’ comp coverage and make sure to follow those rules when working.

If you work for an employer with three or more people, then workers’ compensation insurance will cover you. It might not cover you if your employer has two employees or less. If you work for a company, your company pays worker’s comp insurance. If it is compulsory in your state, you are also an employee if any one of these statements fits:
1) You are paid by the hour or a salary.
2) You work in someone else’s home.
3) You work at a small business with physical premises (not just online sales).
Contract workers are not employees, so they can’t get workers’ compensation insurance. But in some states, contract workers who fit the definition of employee have been deemed to be employees for worker’s compensation insurance purposes. So you need to check what state you live in.
Some people are not covered by workers’ comp insurance. For example, independent contractors are not covered unless they fit within the definition of “employee.” Other people who cannot get workers’ comp insurance are casual domestic workers that work at their employer’s house only.
If workers’ comp insurance is not required in your state and you think you should be covered by it, get a policy that offers “employment practices liability.” This covers accidents that happen to co-workers and customers.
Employment Practices Liability or Workers Compensation Insurance for Contractors?
Employers can buy employment practices liability insurance. This is different from the standard workers’ compensation insurance that most people have. In some states, there are laws that say if a person can buy insurance for their job instead of having to get the standard workers’ comp insurance.
If you get hurt at work and your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, you can choose which doctor to see. If you think the doctor is not treating you well or if he is not good, tell your boss and request another doctor.
If you are injured while working for a company that has no workers’ comp insurance, check with your state labor department to see whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation. If the laws of your state say that they will apply to you even though the company does not have any employees covered by workers’ comp, then it is enough to show that you work there in order to get coverage. That is why it is important to know who is covered by workers compensation.
If you were injured while working for a company that does not have workers’ compensation, find out if your employer qualifies for this exemption. In some cases, self-employed people can qualify as well.

You should talk to a lawyer who can find out if workers’ comp covers you and, if it doesn’t, find you an insurance policy for your job.
If workers’ comp does not cover you, in most cases an employment practices liability insurance policy will.
