Workers' compensation insurance

If you employ one or more full-time, part-time, seasonal, or occasional employees, the state of Idaho requires you to maintain a workers' compensation policy unless you are specifically exempt from the law. You must have workers' compensation in place when the first employee is hired.

This policy covers medical bills for work injuries and illnesses. It also provides disability benefits for injured employees.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Idaho must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy helps cover costs if your work vehicle gets into an accident.

Idaho's minimum requirements for auto liability coverage are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $15,000 property damage liability

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).
