California Workers' Compensation
California is known for its endless coastline and beautiful mountains. However, the Golden State offers much more, and is known for many small businesses and massive corporate headquarters.
California’s business industry has been growing exponentially. The state is known for its many wine vineyards, and an abundance for golf courses. Major California industries include technology, agriculture and manufacturing. Apple, The Walt Disney Company, and Beyond Meat all have their headquarters all in the state.
California’s small businesses employee 48% of the entire population of the state, which is about 7 million people. With more than 470,000 workplace injuries in California and 422 fatalities in 2018, small businesses need to make sure they have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Large businesses in California also can self-insure and set aside funds that are dedicated to workers’ comp. Zenployers is a perfect match for this as well.

WC PayoutsYour worker’s comp insurance must pay for your employee’s medical treatment from day one for any work-related injury. Work-related illnesses are also covered under workers’ compensation law. Illnesses or conditions caused by exposure to harmful conditions (such as mold) or products (such as caustic chemicals) are all covered. If your employees are injured in this way at work in California, they may be entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation law.
