Workers’ compensation insurance

With a few exceptions, Arkansas state law requires businesses with three or more employees, full-time or part-time, to carry workers' compensation insurance. In the construction industry, businesses with fewer than three employees must provide workers' comp.

Employers may not charge Arkansas workers any amount for the coverage costs. This policy covers medical bills for work injuries and illnesses.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Arkansas must be covered by commercial auto insurance. Arkansas's minimum requirements for auto insurance are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability per accident

Trucking companies may need additional insurance coverage to comply with regulations.

Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA), as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to general liability insurance or a business owner's policy (BOP).
