ATHENS, Pa. — What is workers’ compensation insurance? Workers’ compensation insurance is a federally mandated, state regulated program that protects your business if an employee gets injured as a result of work-related activities. Because the agriculture industry can be dangerous, workers’ comp insurance is both complex and important. When your business is covered correctly, this type of insurance will pay for employee medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, retraining and more. If you don’t purchase workers compensation or aren’t covered properly, your business will still be required to pay for these expenses. Carrying workers’ compensation insurance protects your company from the potentially overwhelming costs associated with work related accidents or an employee filed lawsuit.
