Whether you own a large business with hundreds of employees or only a couple, Idaho law requires that you carry several types of insurance to protect both your business, your employees, and third parties should an accident or incident occur. First, if your business employs one or more people regardless of whether they are seasonal, part time or full time employees than state law requires that you carry workers’ compensation insurance. This type of coverage helps pay for medical bills and lost wages associated with an illness or injury that an employee sustained while working. Second, any vehicles that are owned by the company must be covered by a commercial auto insurance policy. Lastly, although it is not required, any business that asks their employees to use their personal vehicles for work purposes like delivery should strongly consider hired and non owned auto insurance because personal policies are highly likely to exclude business use from coverage which could leave an employee exposed for hundreds of thousands of dollars if an accident occurs.
In addition to the aforementioned required insurances, businesses can select from a number of auxiliary options depending on their use case. For example, if your company is at a higher risk of a data breach that could expose sensitive customer information then cyber liability insurance may be an extra coverage that provides peace of mind by helping to pay for losses associated with cyber attacks.
