What if my Employer doesn’t have Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

People ask us what if my employer says he doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance, and I get hurt at work? First thing you do is contact the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission to confirm whether your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. If the employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission will take action against your employer. He will be assessed penalties. Additionally, there is the Uninsured Employer’s Fund, which would pay your benefits and then seek reimbursement from your employer. It is a good idea to confirm with your employer when you go to work for them. Make sure they are covered. You can always call the commission to find out.
