Under Virginia’s Workers’ Compensation Act, employers have certain obligations to their employees. Below is a list of the basic information that every employer should keep in mind.
Employers who refuse or neglect to obtain workers’ compensation coverage where required can be fined up to $5,000.00 and where such failure continues, it may result in the employer being prohibited from conducting business in Virginia. Additionally, uninsured employers place themselves at risk of a suit for damages outside of the workers’ compensation system.
