ALABAMA WORKERS' COMPENSATION LAWS

Alabama's Workers' Compensation Law require you to carry Workers' Comp coverage if you have more than four employees, full-time or part-time (including officers of a corporation). Employers of domestic employees, farm laborers, or casual employees and municipalities having a population of less than 2,000 (according to the most recent federal census) are not required to provide coverage.

  • Sole proprietors in Alabama can purchase Workers' Comp for themselves, but must complete a WC14 Part I Form and file it with the Alabama Department of Labor.
  • Sole proprietors can opt out of carrying the coverage.
  • AL businesses with fewer than four employees are exempt from carrying coverage.
