Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation

The definition of 'employee' in arts and entertainment can vary widely; it's important to consider insurance for freelancers, volunteers, tour managers... Your staff are your greatest asset - and you have a duty of care to keep them safe and well at work. 

Workers' Compensation Insurance is mandatory for companies in the US. It's designed to protect you from costs arising from your liability for employee injuries or illness arising in the workplace.

What if...
  • An employee falls or trips at work because of loose carpet or cabling? The injury prevents them from working for several weeks - during which time you have to pay sick leave as well as hire-in temporary cover
  • An employee wins a court case against you? You're now liable to pay damages and their legal fees, on top of your own
  • An employee makes a mistake while working which results in injury? But you're found liable because you didn't provide adequate safety training
  • You forget to take out coverage for a summer intern joining your team? And get fined for every day they worked...
Coverage can include:
  • Legal costs
  • Compensation due
  • Court attendance compensation
  • Claims for injury and disease - including those caused by terrorism
  • All employees - including volunteers working for you
