Workers’ Compensation Protection for Trade Association Employees

If you have at least one employee, your state most likely requires you to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Workers' compensation is a no-fault policy that can protect both your trade association and your employees. If an employee suffers a workplace accident, injury, or illness, the policy could help to pay for the costs of medical expenses, job retraining, partial lost wages, and hospital visits. Workers' comp could also help shield your trade association against lawsuits pertaining to employee-related injuries.

If an incident occurs, workers' comp coverage helps to protect your business and your employees by:
  • Covering the costs of medical treatment, including x-rays, prescription drugs, hospital stays and surgeries
  • Paying a portion of the employee's regular wages until he or she can return to work
  • Covering the employer's costs for a claim


Protecting Your Trade Association Against Third-Party Liability Claims

General liability insurance can protect your trade association against a variety of third-party claims. This type of coverage can provide essential coverage for a variety of risks including property damage, advertising mistakes, bodily injury and copyright infringement. The policy can also help to pay for legal fees if a third-party claim is made against you.
