Business owners may choose to carry insurance to protect themselves and employees from medical cost and a portion of lost wages for injury or illness as a result of the job. In Virginia it is required or mandatory once you have three or more employees.
What does it cover?
This insurance covers any medical costs and a portion of lost wages if your employee misses at least 7 consecutive work days (maximum 500 weeks). It also protects companies from being sued by employees for workplace conditions that can cause an injury or illness.
