What is Workers‘ Compensation?

Who is required to have workers’ compensation?
Workers’ compensation coverage is required for all employers that have five or more employees. In California, employers are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance, even if they have only one employee. And, if your employees get hurt or sick because of work, you are required to pay for workers’ compensation benefits.
