How Do I Know Whether My Employer Carries Workers' Compensation Insurance?

A lot of clients ask "How do I know if my employer carries official workers' compensation insurance?" Well for starters, the employer is required by law to inform all the employees if they do not carry workers' compensation insurance. But you can also contact the Texas Workers' Compensation Board either by phone or online and see if your employer is on the list. All you've got to do is provide the dates of employment and the name of the company and you can find out real quickly whether or not they are an official subscriber to Texas workers' comp. 

So if you've been hurt on the job and your employer is not an official subscriber to Texas workers' comp, we need to talk because you have a lot of rights that they're not going to tell you about.
