Today we'll discuss the value of worker's compensation insurance plans for the owners of DC, VA, and MD restaurants, bars, and taverns.
Worker's Compensation Insurance benefits restaurants, bars, and tavern owners by covering:
- Legal fees for defending your food service business should an employee sue you for work-related injuries.
- Medical expenses associated with your employees' job-related injuries.
- Wages your employee would have earned during their recovery from a covered on-the-job injury.
Also known as "workman's comp" or "workers' liability insurance," most Workers' Compensation policies also include Employers' Practices Liability Insurance as a safeguard against the lawsuits that tend to accompany job-related accidents. This policy can help pay for legal costs if your employee files a lawsuit against you. Even if the lawsuit is without merit, your business can be covered for the court costs and attorney fees associated with defending yourself against the claim. Without proper coverage, the attorney's fees alone can be enough to bankrupt a small business.
