Both the East and West coasts have seen their share of devastation this year. When a natural disaster rolls in, knocking out power, destroying homes and even taking lives, many businesses are forced to limit the scope of their operations or suspend them completely. Employers may be left wondering how an event like this will affect their workers’ compensation premiums and employers liability insurance. Employees may be concerned about the effect it will have on their workers’ comp benefits and necessary care if they were injured prior to the event. Additionally, workers injured while working during a natural disaster or in the immediate aftermath may face additional workplace safety issues that require attention from their employers.
