Workers’ Compensation & USL&H


Home / Marine Insurance / Workers’ Compensation & USL&H

Employers are responsible to help pay for medical expenses, missed wages or funeral expenses of an injured employee. Each state creates its own statutes for workers’ compensation, and companies in the marine industry may be subject to even more expensive and stringent coverage. If your business has employees regularly working on a navigable waterway, you may be required to purchase Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation insurance, commonly referred to as USL&H.  This is a federal workers’ compensation law that applies to maritime employees and failure to purchase the coverage can have significant consequences to the business owner. Let the agents at Brown & Brown Fort Lauderdale help you navigate through what is required by law so that you can avoid any surprises down the road.
