Workers’ Compensation FAQ

  • What is workers’ compensation insurance?

    What is workers’ compensation insurance?

    Workers' compensation (or "workers' comp") provides replacement wages and medical benefits to employees injured on the job in exchange for relinquishing the employee's right to their employer for negligence.

  • What does workers’ compensation insurance cover?

    What does workers’ compensation insurance cover?

    This insurance provides benefits to employees who are injured or get sick from a work-related situation. "Workers' Comp" also includes disability benefits, wage replacement and death benefits. For employers, Workers’ Comp reduces their liability for work-related injuries and illnesses. Without this coverage, your employees can sue for their medical costs and lost wages stemming from a work-related injury or illness.

  • Why do I need workers’ compensation insurance?

    Why do I need workers’ compensation insurance?

    Most states require businesses with employees to carry workers’ compensation insurance to provide benefits to employees for work-related injuries or illnesses. Beyond offering employees health insurance, which does not cover work-related injuries or illnesses, businesses need worker's compensation to protect injured employees and cover these claims.

  • How much does workers’ compensation insurance cost?

    How much does workers’ compensation insurance cost?

    Workers’ compensation insurance cost varies based on the business size, its location, its industry and its specific claims history. Also, workers’ comp rates and requirements vary from state to state. In general, for every $100,000 in payroll, the average workers’ compensation policy ranges from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars per year. At Paychex, our Workers’ Compensation Payment Service can reduce or eliminate large end-of-year payments by basing your premiums on actual wages, not estimates.
