What is workers comp insurance?
Workers' compensation insurance is coverage to protect yourself as an employer from the financial risk of one of your employees being injured on the job. This insurance covers not only the employee's medical bills but often times, lost wages and legal expenses associated with the specific case.
What type of losses does workers' comp cover?
Injuries or loss of limbs, repetitive motion injuries, work site accidents, medical treatment, rehabilitation needed so workers can return to work, lost wages (up to two-thirds of the employee’s salary), death, and liability insurance for the company for lawsuits filed by injured employees.
Who is required to have workers' comp?
All employers (except those in Texas) are required by law to have workers’ comp for their employees.
As an employer, where do I get workers' comp for my employees?
Four states require that you get your workers' comp insurance directly from the state: North Dakota, Ohio, Washington, and Wyoming. In all other states, you can go to the state for workers' comp insurance or get it through a private insurance provider. Intuit partners with an insurance broker, AP Intego, to help Intuit Payroll customers find workers' comp.
How much does workers' comp cost?
Your workers' comp policy is unique to your business and depends on many different factors. These include your industry, amount you pay your employees, number of employees, where your employees work, and what they do every day.
If you use the Workers' Comp Payment Service to pay workers’ comp, Intuit may add a $5 monthly fee to your payroll bill
What are my options for paying for workers' comp?
1) Traditional workers’ comp. This kind of plan requires that you estimate your payroll for the coming year—a premium is then calculated based on this information and you pay a large portion of this premium up front.
2) Pay-as-you-go (Workers' Comp Payment Service). This kind of plan lets you send your premium payments to your workers’ comp carrier based on your actual payroll info—no guesswork needed! Intuit believes pay-as-you-go is better for small businesses, as this improves cash flow compared to single annual payments.
What are the penalties for not having workers' comp?
There are severe consequences for businesses that don't have workes' comp insurance. These consequences include (but are not limited to) heavy fines, exposure to lawsuits, and forced closure of your business.
Do I pay any fees?
Only a modest $5 monthly fee for use of the QuickBooks Workers' Compensation Payment Service, regardless of how many employees or size of payroll. This non-refundable fee will be seamlessly added to your invoice from Intuit and is separate from any premium charged for the workers' comp insurance policy by AP Intego Insurance Group. There is no additional charge if you are an Assisted Payroll customer or Full Service Payroll customer. The Workers' Compensation Payment Service is not available during any trial period of your payroll product, if offered. The Workers' Compensation Service requires a paid Intuit payroll subscription.
