Wisconsin Workers' Compensation
Wisconsin is known for its friendly people, beautiful shoreline, and scenic north. However, America’s Dairyland offers so much more, and is known for its many small businesses and corporate headquarters.
Wisconsin’s business industry has been on a steady rise in the past few years. The state is known for its Lake Michigan beaches, avid sports fans, and of course its cheese. Major industries in Wisconsin include manufacturing, agriculture, healthcare, tourism, and education. ACS Group, Johnson Controls, Kohl’s, Tyco International Plc, and Menards are all headquartered in Wisconsin.
Small businesses in Wisconsin employ more than 1.2 million people. This accountants for 50% of the state’s private workforce, and with more than 70,400 workplace injuries and 114 fatalities across all industries in 2018, small businesses need to make sure they have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Large businesses in Wisconsin also self-insure and set aside funds that are dedicated to workers’ comp. Zenployers is a perfect match for this as well.
WC OverviewWisconsin has a no-fault system workers’ compensations system. That means it doesn’t matter if an employee caused their own injury by being careless. If they are otherwise eligible, they are entitled to benefits. However, there are some exceptions.
- Domestic employees
- Independent contractor
- Sole proprietors
- Medical Care
- Doctor visits
- Hospital visits
- Physical therapy
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 Wisconsin, they may be entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation law.
