Kansas Workers' Compensation
Kansas is known for its rolling plains and beautiful scenery. However, the Sunflower State is also known for its many small businesses and corporate headquarters.
Kansas’s business industry has grown in recent years. The state is known for its sunflower fields and endless rolling plains. Major Kansas industries include Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Mining, Construction, and Manufacturing. Koch Industries, Butler Transport, Dillions Supermarkets, Synergy Group, and Sprint all have their headquarters in Kansas.
Small businesses in Kansas employ more than 596,270 people. This accounts for 52% of the state’s private workforce, and with more than 46,000 and 72 fatalities across all industries in 2017, small businesses need to make sure they have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Large businesses in Kansas also self-insure and set aside funds that are dedicated to workers’ comp. Zenployers is also a perfect match for this as well.

- Certain agricultural workers
- Independent Contractors
- Firefighters that have waived coverage
- Owner-operator vehicle drivers who have occupational accident insurance
- Doctors’ visits
- Hospital bills
- Prosthetic devices
WC PayoutsYour worker’s comp insurance must pay for your employee’s medical treatment from day one for any work-related injury.

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 Kansas, they may be entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation law.
