Is Everyone Covered By Workers Compensation Insurance?
Workers or employees are covered by Workers Compensation Insurance. Employers must have this insurance in place, but it only covers a worker who is injured or becomes ill while on the job. Workers Compensation Insurance provides compensation for lost wages when you are unable to work. Merely being employed does not cover you, the compensation is only available to you if your illness or injury occurs while working. If you are hurt during your own time off the clock, you are not covered.
If you take a job in a dangerous environment, be sure the employer has a Workers Compensation Policy in effect. Usually all full and part time workers are covered by Workers Compensation Insurance. If you are an independent contractor, you have to have your own personal Workers Compensation coverage. Bogle Agency Insurance has been guiding businesses and employees toward the proper insurance protections needed in NJ for many years.
