    Do I Need Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

    Almost every business in Utah is required to have workers’ compensation insurance. However, there are some important exceptions. For example, if you have no employees (including in the case of sole proprietorships, partnerships, and limited liability companies (LLCs)) you are not legally required to purchase this coverage.

    If you are required to have workers’ compensation insurance and you do not purchase it, there can be serious consequences. For starters, you could face a $1000 fine, a legal order to stop your business from operating in Utah, and loss of the “exclusive remedy” (this protects employers from getting sued for workers’ comp benefits).
