Many business owners in Texas choose to go uncovered for worker’s compensation insurance. As a result, Texas Law considers them to be Non-Subscribers. By making this choice, they have accepted the liability for paying out lifetime medical, disability, and loss of wages for injured workers. In addition, they may be liable for other civil penalties. An employer who is a Non-Subscriber, can be sued, and they have unlimited liability, making them unable to use any common defenses in court.
Worker’s Compensation Protection
Carrying Worker’s Compensation insurance reduces the risk of being sued, and the cost of being a subscriber is lower today than it’s been in the last twenty years. Many times the cost of Worker’s Comp insurance is less than 2% of your payroll expense, if you take into consideration all of the discounts our Association program provides its members.
