Who is required to provide workers’ compensation in North Carolina?
The North Carolina Industrial Commission requires that any employer who employs at least three employees provide workers’ compensation coverage. This figure can include executive officers as well as general employees. The number of employees, however, is not the only determining factor. Depending on the work the company or corporation has its employees performing, they might be required to provide workers’ compensation. One such example of this is the handling or presence of radioactive materials or radiation.
