Workers’ Compensation and Employers Liability

A client asked about the difference in workers’ compensation and employers’ liability.  
Workers’ Compensation is the state-mandated health insurance, disability insurance, and life insurance coverage employers buy to cover employees in employment-related injuries and sickness.
Employers’ liability is for lawsuits arising out of the employment relationship that are not employee injuries. For example, a boatyard worker comes home with asbestos on his clothing. His kids get sick because of the asbestos.
If he got sick, that would be workers’ compensation.  A lawsuit by his wife or kids would be employers’ liability.
The basic statutory limits for employers’ liability are $100,000 per occurrence for bodily injury, $100,000 per employee for bodily injury by disease, and a $500,000 policy limit for bodily injury by disease. The coverage can be found on most workers’ compensation policies, listed as Section Two on the declarations page.
