Did you know that many states have mandated that household employers have a Worker’s Compensation Insurance Policy?
There are various legal requirements for obtaining this insurance which will vary widely from state to state. Most often, the job description is not the defining item. Instead, wages paid or hours worked will be. Even if your state does not require you to have worker's compensation insurance, smart employers obtain this important protection anyway to protect the family's assets and the household employee in the event of a workplace injury.
