Q: Do I have to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance for my business?
A: Texas law does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However it is highly recommended. The Texas workers’ compensation system is the method by which covered workers are compensated for work-related injuries or illnesses. Employers without this coverage face unlimited liability including possible punitive damages should they lose lawsuits arising from workplace accidents. Without this coverage employers also lose certain common law defenses if they are sued as a result of on-the-job injuries.
