Kansas's law requires all employers to carry Workers' Compensation Insurance, unless your business is involved in certain agricultural areas or has a gross annual payroll of less than $20,000. All payroll is factored in this rule, including that paid in Kansas and elsewhere, including the pay of executive officers. If the Kansas employer is a sole proprietor or a partnership, wages paid to the owners and any owners' family members are not counted toward the $20,000.
