Who is covered by workers’ compensation?

Not all employees are covered by workers’ compensation, as not all employers are required to participate in the insurance program. Depending on your state, factors influencing an employer’s required provision of workers’ compensation coverage include the number of people they employ, the type of service they provide, and the typical responsibilities of employees. Also, most employers are only required to cover full-time, regular employees, excluding seasonal, casual, and farm workers, among others.
