A Workers’ Compensation policy is created for the purpose of protecting the employees who get hurt physically or become ill from their work. Nearly all states in the U.S. have a state-specific Workers’ Compensation laws that require the employers to provide the basic help that their employees need when their health is threatened by their work.
The Workers and Their Work
In general, a regular employee’s pay is just enough to provide for his or her family’s needs, primarily the food, shelter, and utilities. The sad truth is sometimes their pay doesn’t even suffice for their basic needs. Some people work to send themselves to college, some to send someone else to school. In most American families, the mothers are the breadwinners. The Institute for Women’s Policy Research stated in a report in April 2020 that in about 15 million families in the U.S., the breadwinner is the mother. And more than four out of ten breadwinner mothers, regardless of race and ethnicity, are single. That makes a population of over 6 million.
Each worker has a story. It can be a story of striving to achieve one’s dreams. It can be a story of providing a better home for the family. Or it can be about finding a work environment where they feel they belong to. No matter what reasons employees may have that motivate them to work, the bottom line is they all need to be protected from the dangers that can harm them at work.

Be informed of how SynchronoSure®’s Workers’ Compensation covers your business.
A Workers’ Compensation policy is responsible for paying the medical costs of the employees’ accidents on the job. The coverage is not only for inceptive medical treatments but even for ongoing medical care charges.
SynchronoSure®’s Workers’ Compensation reimburses the loss of income for employees who are incapacitated for work resulting from their workplace accident.
Long-term Illnesses and Injuries
When an employee suffers from a long-term disability, which could be a health problem or being incapable of doing the same activities at work, the policy will also provide coverage at a certain limit.
The Workers’ Compensation also recompenses for the death of the employee as a result of job-related accident or illness. This insurance will pay for the funeral costs and give benevolence to the grieving family.
Paying Expenses from Personal Finance
Employers are spared from paying large amount of money for their employees’ medical bills, lost wages, disability, and even funeral expenses when they have a Workers’ Compensation insurance.
Employers’ Liability Policy
Inside a Workers’ Compensation policy is an Employers’ Liability coverage. The Workers’ Compensation covers unintentional injuries and illness that employees acquire within their work. On the other hand, an Employers’ Liability policy covers the claims outside of employees’ work. This includes third-party-over actions, loss of consortium, dual capacity, and consequential bodily injury.
Workers’ Compensation Is A Must
A Workers’ Compensation policy is important not only to the employees, but even to employers. Without a Workers’ Compensation, the business will end up in lawsuits and the business owner will have no choice but to pay for the legal expenses and all the damages from his or her own pocket.
There are many ways to protect your business from financial liabilities such as having a strategic risk management, hiring an attorney, etc. But one of the first things you need to know, especially if you are just establishing your business, a Workers’ Compensation is a must.
