But it’s worth having anyway. It protects your business from the cost of workplace injuries to your staff. And these can be crippling. It’s not just the lost productivity. Without insurance, you’ll have to find the cash to cover your employee’s medical expenses and replace their missed wages. And if you’re sued, there’ll be legal costs to pay, too. If one of your employees falls ill as a result of working for you, or gets hurt while they’re on the job, workers’ comp insurance can pay for medical bills, lost wages and legal expenses. It can also protect you from a lawsuit - no matter who’s at fault.
