Health Benefits

Question: Does a business have to give workers health or disability insurance plans?

No. Health Insurance and disability plans are voluntary benefits that a business may or may not choose to provide. This issue is not regulated by L&I. However, Insurance Commission rules regarding termination of benefits may apply.
