Workers Comp For Your Nanny

Having a nanny or a household helper is very helpful for busy working parents. Nannies help you with babysitting, chores, and maintaining your home. Aside from their basic salary, their welfare and other benefits should be provided as the law states. This will also show your care and concern as a responsible employer.

This insurance protects you from possible financial loss due to liabilities and expenses when an employee gets into a work-related accident. Your household employees, like a nanny, a senior caregiver, or a housekeeper, are the common beneficiaries of this policy. They may get injuries when tripped or slip while cleaning or may be bitten by your dog while walking them.

The medical costs and loss of wages due to injuries are usually included in available policies in your state. Aside from that, it can protect you in case of lawsuits and legal costs if an employee wants to sue you.

Does The Law Require It?

Many states' laws require Workers' Comp Insurance if a nanny or senior caregiver works for you and the household.

Some states require full, part-time, and voluntary coverage for household employees. They also set these requirements based on workers' basic salary rate, work hours, or the number of workers in the household.
