Florida Attorneys Helps Uninsured Employers

Employment defense Attorney in Florida

The law requires that employers maintain workers' compensation insurance to cover medical costs, wage loss and benefits for workers injured or killed on the job. Allowing a workers' compensation policy to lapse is risky for an employer especially if there is a job-related injury during the uninsured period. An uninsured employer is open to lawsuits, penalties and other consequences due to a lack of coverage.
