Workers’ Compensation Insurance in Dartmouth MA

All businesses in Massachusetts are obligated to have workers’ compensation coverage for their employees.

This requirement is applicable…

  • Regardless of how many hours your employees work
  • For domestic service employees who work at least 16 hours per week
  • To cover you, the business owner, if you are considered an employee of the business (exceptions for LLCs, Sole Proprietors, and Executive Officers)
  • To members of your family even if they are the only employees of the business

It is extremely unlikely you are exempt from these requirements – most companies fall into the non-exempt category of businesses. However, even if you are one of the exceptions – say a sole proprietor or LLC owner – you should still consider purchasing workers’ compensation insurance in Dartmouth MA for yourself. Our team at Morse can explain in detail some of the typical factors behind why you may consider this including:

  • Working in construction or other high-risk jobs
  • If you want additional protection against accidents in the workplace or on a job, which your personal health insurance may not cover
  • To avoid any anxiety over who will pay for each component of your medical care, from bandages to ambulance fees

For Dartmouth MA business owners who are not exempt, we have a legal obligation to our employees to have a workers’ compensation policy in place, and the law will not support a company that violates the mandate.

If an employer does not have a workers’ compensation policy in place but continues to operate, they will be issued a Stop Work Order from the DIA Office of Investigations and can be assessed immediate fines. Fines accrue each day until insurance coverage takes effect, and the fine must be paid in full for your business to resume operations. While this all sounds very ominous, Morse, of course, prefers taking a half glass full mindset instead. Workers’ Comp insurance can actually be beneficial because it is designed to protect you and your business from being required to pay large amounts of money to cover an employee’s medical expenses related to a workplace injury or illness. Instead of being required to pay the balance by yourself, a workers’ compensation program from Morse Insurance be able to cover the following:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Permanent Disability
  • Partial Wages
  • Death Benefit to Beneficiary

…and also safeguard you and your company from litigation related to the accident.

Millions of workplace accidents and illnesses occur every year, so as a business owner, it is crucial that your workers’ comp program meets all local requirements. The Morse team excels at finding the right workers’ compensation coverage to protect businesses and their employees throughout Southeastern Massachusetts.
