All employees working for an employer with three or more workers are protected immediately by worker`s compensation. Employers with fewer than three workers come under the law if they pay wages of $500 or more in any quarter of a calendar year. Their workers are covered by the law 10 days after the end of that quarter. Farm workers are covered if the owner of the farm has six or more employees on 20 or more days in a calendar year.
