Workers Comp Insurance: Retail Store & Wholesale Operations

This vital coverage replaces employees’ lost wages when they are off work due to on-the-job accidents or illnesses. Workers comp also pays for employee medical bills.

The private workers comp market in New York allows business owners to purchase this coverage from any private insurance agency or company that is licensed to write insurance in the state. Enforce Coverage Group, like other workers compensation insurance agents, competes with the New York State Insurance Fund. This public entity assists employers that cannot find insurance coverage elsewhere.

The NYSIF does accept high-risk businesses, but you should be aware that the NYSIF rates are often much higher than those found with private insurance carriers.

Although your business type, number of employees and past claims affect your workers compensation premiums, you can shop these rates to find the best coverage and pricing to fit your needs.

Enforce Coverage Group specializes in workers comp insurance for retail stores and wholesalers. We can help you find the right policy to protect your employees and business.
