Texas Nonsubscriber Employer Regulations

The state of Texas does not require private employers to hold workers’ compensation insurance. Employers who do not offer workers’ compensation are called nonsubscribers. Workers compensations insurance can help pay medical costs, lost wages, and disability payments of employees who are injured in a workplace accident. Without this basic coverage for workers, nonsubscribers also lose protections for themselves. If an employee is injured on the job, a nonsubscriber can be directly sued for negligence and held responsible for injuries and even punitive damages.

Some employers buy “alternative coverages,” or cheaper insurance policies, instead of workers’ compensation. Texas law says an alternative is not a substitute for workers’ compensation insurance, and you can’t tell your employees it is. An accident, health, or disability policy may offer some benefits to workplace accident victims, but they are greatly limited and do not meet all the needs of injured employees. That’s one reason alternative policies do not protect employers from lawsuits.

Nonsubscriber Employer Liability

Employers without workers’ compensation lose certain rights and defenses in court. Injured employees can sue nonsubscribers for compensation and punitive damages. If they are found even partially responsible for an employee’s injury, nonsubscribers may end up paying for legal and medical fees, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. And nonsubscribers cannot use certain common law defenses granted to employers with workers compensation. For example, nonsubscribers may NOT claim the following:

  • The injury was caused by the worker’s own negligence
  • The injury was caused by the negligence of another worker
  • The employee was aware of the workplace dangers, and chose to perform the task anyway.

Nonsubscriber Employee Rights

Every worker has the right to be safe in their place of employment, and provided for in the case of an accident or injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in your workplace due to someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, you may be able to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and more. The first step is to call an experienced workplace accident attorney who can help you hold the responsible party liable in court.
