How Do I Know If My Employer Is Covered By Workers' Compensation?

California law requires employers to have workers` compensation insurance. Some out­of­state employers may need workers` compensation coverage if an employee is regularly employed in California or a contract of employment is entered into in California. People in business for themselves and some unpaid volunteers may not be covered, while maritime workers and federal employees are usually protected by under federal laws.
