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

Texas is the only state that still allows private employers to choose whether or not to maintain workers` compensation insurance. Employers who choose not to maintain coverage must notify the Commission and their employees that they do not intend to maintain workers` compensation insurance. If you are unsure if your employer is covered, contact the Texas Workers` Compensation Commission at 512­804­4435.
