  Small Business Advisory Page  

 

As required by Public Act 93-0318, this page will:

1) give notice of any proposed or adopted rules related to the agency that would affect small business owners;

2) explain any new law that the agency is designated to administer that affects small businesses.


There are no special provisions in the Workers' Compensation Act that apply only to small businesses.  All employers must:

1. Obtain workers' compensation insurance;
2. Post a notice in each workplace that lists the insurance carrier and explains workers' rights:
3. Keep records of work-related injuries and report to the Commission those accidents involving more than three lost workdays;
4. NOT harass, discharge, refuse to rehire, or in any way discriminate against an employee for exercising his or her rights under the law;
5. NOT charge the employee in any way for workers' compensation insurance premiums or benefits that the employer is required to pay.
