Workers’ Compensation Insurance for Maine Businesses1
Maine requires that most employers obtain workers’ compensation insurance, including all privately-owned businesses, as well as state and municipal entities. Workers’ compensation insurance helps protect your employees and your business in the event of an employee’s work-related injury or illness. By not carrying workers’ compensation insurance, you may leave your business exposed to the full cost of required payments due to a workers’ compensation claim. Your employees could also suffer potential delays in receiving adequate medical treatment following a worksite injury or illness. You may also face civil penalties of up to $10,000 or 108 percent of the premiums that should have been paid during your time without coverage.
