Understanding Workers’ Compensation Laws in Arizona

The Industrial Commission of Arizona, or ICA, is the government body responsible for regulating Workers’ Compensation regulations and compliance in the state.

According to Arizona state law, you should purchase Workers’ Compensation if you regularly employ one or more employees. However, this may not apply to domestic workers employed to work in a home or independent contractors. Additionally, you may not be required to provide coverage to officers, directors, or shareholders.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work in Arizona?

When an employee is injured at work, they should report their injuries to their employer as soon as possible. As soon as you become aware of the injury, you should inform your insurance provider and report it to the ICA using Form 0101.

After an incident is reported to your provider, the claim will be approved or declined. If the claim is approved, the injured employee may be eligible for medical bills, lost wages, or other financial payments.

The Importance of Securing Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation is not just a legal requirement for business owners but can also be an ethical one. With a comprehensive Workers’ Compensation policy, you can help ensure your employees can be protected and taken care of in the event of a workplace accident or injury.

Here are some other benefits of purchasing Workers’ Compensation:

Legal Compliance

Help Boost Employee Trust and Confidence

Help Protect Your Team

As mentioned above, Workers’ Compensation can be a legal obligation of employers to their employees. In Arizona, failure to provide coverage can result in hefty fines, jail time, and expensive financial losses.

By purchasing a Workers’ Compensation policy, you can help ensure your business is legally compliant and you could help prevent damaging legal issues.

Workers’ Compensation helps to protect your employees and can build their trust and confidence in the company.

By offering protection, you are showing your employees that you more than likely care about their safety and well-being. This could be a great way to create an environment of mutual respect between employers and employees.

The benefits of Workers’ Compensation don’t only reside inside your workplace; it can also extend to an employee beyond their job.

Workers’ Compensation can provide financial protection in the event of an incident. It could help them cover their bills if they need time to recover from a workplace injury.

The Consequences of Not Purchasing Workers’ Compensation in Arizona

You could face serious legal consequences should you fail to provide comprehensive coverage to your employees. Here are some of the potential ramifications you may face:

  • An initial penalty fine of $1,000;
  • Subsequent penalty fines of $5,000 to 10,000 if you continuously delay getting Workers’ Compensation; and
  • A possibility of business closure.

An injured employee can file a claim with the ICA, and they can grant the employee access to a Special Fund if you do not have insurance.

If granted, the ICA can penalize you by obtaining the amount from your business with an additional 10% penalty for lacking employee coverage.
