A. Yes. The Workers’ Compensation Division maintains an Uninsured employer’s Benefit Trust Fund (UEBTF) to pay benefits to workers who become sick or injured while working for an uninsured employer. Keep in mind, however, that UEBTF will seek reimbursement from you for any benefits it pays to the employee. The Fund may pursue various civil remedies to claim this reimbursement such as filing a lien against your property. If a workplace accident or injury occurs while you are uninsured, contact an attorney immediately to discuss your options.
