It’s the Little Things that Count

Written by

These days it seems like it’s getting harder and harder to compete with all the flourish and flair many start-ups and tech companies offer. Take Google, for example; they offer their employees things like gourmet cafeterias, video games, nap pods, massage rooms, and rock climbing walls all for free. Employees can even do their laundry at work for free. They can get a haircut for free. They can start a friendly volleyball game during work hours if they wanted to; they just need to head down to the volleyball courts.

The listed providers must be at separate and distinct locations and have no common ownership.  Injured workers must also be allowed to make a one-time change of the treating physician within 90 days of injury as long as maximum medical improvement (MMI) has not been reached.

Workers Compensation

Written by

Workers compensation in Colorado is required for all employers that have one or more employees. The information below is from Pinnacol Assurance the largest workers Compensation carrier in Colorado.

Does my business need a workers' compensation policy?
Colorado law requires any business with one or more employees to carry workers' compensation insurance. Sole proprietors and partners in a business are not considered employees and are not required to be covered on a policy. Corporate officers and members of limited liability companies who are active in the company are considered employees, but they may be eligible to exempt themselves from coverage. They must meet certain statutory conditions to reject coverage. For information on other exemptions, please refer to Pinnacol Assurance's Employer's Guide to Workers' Compensation or contact the Division of Workers' Compensation.

What happens if my business doesn't have a workers' compensation policy?
Employers have sole responsibility to provide insurance for their employees. If unlawfully uninsured at the time of an injury, the employer must pay all statutory medical and disability benefits for the injured employee and an additional 50 percent of all temporary, permanent, and disfigurement benefits for having been uninsured."

The cost of an injury can and more than likely will be far more expensive than if your company carried a workers compensation policy. A workers compensation policy is a cost efective insurance against the potential lose of your business. If you are looking for first time coverage or looking to renew your current policy give StaffScapes and call and learn how a Professional Employer Organization can help bring cost effective coverage to your business.
