Businesses who do not carry the insurance can undercut prices of the legitimate businesses because they have less overhead. Enforcement and compliance provides a level playing field for all businesses.

Proof of coverage must be posted at the place of business. Workers Compensation Insurance not only provides help to injured workers, it protects businesses from certain liability.
