Your Missouri Workers’ Comp Attorney

Your Employer’s Workers’ Comp Responsibilities
In the state of Missouri, any employer with five or more employees is required to hold workers’ compensation coverage. Additionally, any employer in the construction industry with one or more employees must maintain workers’ comp coverage. Most employers will obtain coverage through the state of Missouri, but employers can get permission from the Division of Workers’ Compensation to self-insure in some cases. This coverage is meant to protect both the employer and employee in the case of an injury.
