What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation Insurance provides benefits to your employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. This coverage pays for medical care and lost wages of your injured employees.


Workers’ compensation coverage is always mandatory if you have employees.
Cuts, punctures, burns, and muscle strains are the most common workers compensation claims in the hospitality industry.
An injured employee takes an average of 30 days to return to work.
Coffee shops yield the most time lost in the hospitality industry.
A formal employee loss control program can greatly reduce employee lost-time accidents.

Are you covered?

Be mindful of the difference between an employee and an independent contractor. Many times, business owners unintentionally (and sometimes intentionally) attempt to classify employees as private contractors. If you control certain aspects of an individual’s work patterns or schedule, they may be classified as an employee and you may be responsible for any workplace maladies or injuries that may arise.

Why Does Your Business Need Workers’ Compensation?

A bartender strains his back organizing kegs before St. Patrick’s Day. Another bartender severs tendons in her thumb while cutting. A brewer suffers severe burns while running a sanitizing cycle on your brewing system. Workplace injuries are often accidents, and they happen fast.

Claim Vault

You had a stellar bartender. She was your right hand and confidant while working for you. One night, she got into an argument on the phone with her fiance while cutting limes at the bar. She stabbed the knife in the cutting board after hanging up and severed tendons in her hand. You didn’t have workers comp insurance, but did the right thing and paid for her medical expenses. A few years after she left, you received a complaint demanding additional compensation. You had to pay additional medical expenses along with a $10,000 fine. If you had workers comp coverage, you would have been covered.

True Story—We’ve been around since 1946. We’ve seen a lot.
