My Employer Has No Workers Compensation Insurance
Many Massachusetts employers inexplicably do not have workers compensation insurance. With limited exceptions, all Massachusetts businesses are required to carry this insurance. When they do not, injured workers are not without recourse.
What happens if there is no workers compensation insurance?
The Massachusetts Workers Compensation Trust Fund is the branch of the Department of Industrial Accidents that handles these cases. The Trust Fund has attorneys that handle claims brought by injured workers against the Fund.
Before filing a claim with the Trust Fund, one should verify to make sure his/her employer does not in fact have workers compensation coverage.
Failing to have workers comp insurance can subject an employer to serious legal consequences. Also, the employee, unlike with cases in which there is insurance, may sue his/her employer for failing to carry insurance.
