Workers Comp/Short Term Disability

Workers’ Compensation

Workers Compensation protects your employees should a job related injury or sickness occur during the course of employment. Payments are made to the injured party and can consist of medical payments, loss of wages or therapy. Premiums are based upon occupations, classifications, payroll, experience, and State modifications. Workers’ Compensation and Employers Liability are mandatory.
