Workers' compensation insurance

If you have one or more employees, full-time or part-time, Delaware law requires you to carry workers' compensation insurance. Employers may not charge an employee any amount for the coverage costs.

This policy covers medical bills for work-related injuries and illnesses. It also provides disability payments while the employee is recovering and unable to work.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy covers the cost of accidents involving work vehicles.

Delaware's auto insurance requirements are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $15,000 personal injury protection for any one person
  • $30,000 personal injury protection for all persons injured in any one accident

Trucking companies may need additional 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).
