Other Insurance for Small Businesses
Small business owners need to consider types of insurance other than health insurance. Workers’ Compensation coverage is required by State law. Property insurance can protect your business in case of a loss, and liability coverage may be needed in case of a lawsuit. Some employers also purchase key person life insurance to protect the business in case of the loss of an individual vital to the business.
