Workers Compensation Insurance

Employers Insurance

Workers' comp covers employees' job-related injuries. Unlike general liability insurance, workers comp also protects the employers from being sued by their employees for negligence. If a painter hires an apprentice who injuries his back on a job, workers' comp covers his medical bills and claims for pain and suffering. If his injury disables him and prevents him from painting again, workers' compensation insurance for painters will pay to train him for a new career.
