AUTOMOBILE   HOMEOWNERS   BUSINESS   TOWING   FARM

We've had quite a few questions related to work comp of late so we are going to do a series of posts and address a few items that come up often.  Hopefully this will alleviate some concerns and make processes such as audits more efficient for Arkansas employers!

Simply stated, work comp is designed to be an exclusive remedy for employee injuries. Exclusive -  meaning the sole solution and not an optional solution for employees to recover from injury.
What does work comp cover?  Essentially medical bills and helps to offset lost wages should an employee have rehabilitation before returning to work.
An Arkansas based employer with 3 or more employees is basically required to carry work comp - there are a few exceptions such as agriculture. 
Coverage is paid for by the employer and not deducted from employee wages.  The "exclusive remedy" nature of work comp helps to protect the liability of employers and provides a benefit to employees.

That's the basics - we'll dig into more detail in the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, give us a call in Forrest City, Marianna, Greenbrier, Conway, Little Rock, or Stuttgart if you have any questions.  Each office can be contacted through our website:  www.mfsgrp.com/
