What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation Insurance is designed to protect both the employees and the business. All for-profit businesses in NYS who have employees, or workers the Workers’ Compensation Board considers to be employees, are required to have Workers' Comp insurance. You may need insurance even for independent contractors or those receiving 1099s.

You may not need Workers’ Compensation Insurance if you do not have any employees, and are sole proprietors, or individuals in partnership, LLCs, or a one- or two-person corporation. A licensed agent can help you determine how much coverage you need based on your business.
