Workers’ Compensation Overview
All employees in Massachusetts are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance covering their employees, including themselves, if they are an employee of their company. This requirement applies regardless of the number of hours worked in any given week, except for domestic service employees who must work a minimum of 16 hours per week in order to require coverage. As an independent agency in Massachusetts, Phil Richard has strong relationships with a number of insurance companies offering Workers’ Compensation products, guaranteeing our customers the best pricing and the most comprehensive options. Our unique “pay as you go” payment model insures low and no cost payment terms to help you maintain cash flow and minimize premiums. If one of your employees is injured on the job, you can rely on the Workers’ Compensation coverage you’ve obtained through Phil Richard Insurance.
