MS Workers' Comp: Key Details

  • Sole proprietors, partners, and corporate officers in Mississippi do not count toward the employee threshold for statutory purposes if they choose to not cover themselves.
  • Independent contractors are excluded from coverage, but special protection is given to employees of subcontractors.
  • Domestic and farm labor, and employees of non-profit fraternal, charitable, religious, or cultural organizations are not required to carry coverage.
  • Insurance coverage can be purchased from commercial providers. Mississippi businesses that qualify may be able to self-insure.
