Employer resources

In Texas, private employers can choose to carry workers' compensation insurance coverage, but it is not required in most cases. A workers' compensation insurance policy provides lost wages and medical benefits to employees injured on the job. Except when gross negligence results in a fatality, coverage limits liability if an employee sues your business for damages.
