The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act Must be Met By Businesses

The current law in the state of North Carolina, requires any business employing three or more workers to subsequently purchase workers’ compensation insurance or to alternatively have the means to self-insure.

Any employer caught not abiding by this law is subject to face sanctions, fines and criminal charges. However, many employers find loopholes in the law to claim that their business is part of a different category and they do not need to maintain coverage.

If that takes place at your job, or the job of someone that you love, the attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban are more than ready to help!
