Like whether or not you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits based as your status as a full time or part-time worker, you likely also have questions about for how long you have be employed before workers’ compensation benefits will be offered to you. Employers are required to offer workers’ compensation the minute that they hire an employee, even if you are the sole employee of that business. As such, your eligibility for workers’ compensation insurance begins on your first day of work. However, remember that if you are an independent contractor, and not an employee, you will not be covered under workers’ compensation insurance.
