Is my Employer required to carry Workers' Compensation Insurance?

The North Carolina Workers' Compensation Act requires that all businesses which employ three or more employees, including those operating as corporations, sole proprietorships, limited liability companies and partnerships, obtain workers' compensation insurance or qualify as self-insured employers for purposes of paying workers' compensation benefits to their employees. The only exceptions to this requirement are (a) employees of certain railroads; (b) casual employees, i.e., individuals who do not perform "work pertaining to the regular course of defendant's business"; (c) domestic servants directly employed by the household; (d) farm laborers when fewer than 10 full-time, non-seasonal farm laborers are regularly employed by the same employer; (e) federal government employees in North Carolina; and (f) "sellers of agricultural products for the producers thereof on commission or for other compensation, paid by the producers, provided the product is prepared for sale by the producer."
