In Oregon & Washington, most businesses need to carry business insurance and almost every landlord will require General Liability insurance as part of the lease agreement for a commercial space. In Oregon & Washington, insurance is required for contractors registered with the Construction Contractors Board, Landscape Contractors Board, Bureau of Labor & Industries, and Property Services Contractors Board. All businesses with non-family employees also must have worker's compensation insurance, like most states in the country. The state is very serious about enforcing employee protections and failure to comply will result in fines. Before you hire your very first employee, you must obtain a worker's compensation insurance. If you are not insured and a worker gets hurt while on the job, you and your business will be liable and the resulting settlement process could jeopardize the going concern of your business. For businesses that use vehicles in their operations, Commercial Auto Insurance is important especially if you have employees using your vehicles or you are delivering products to customers. These activities are specifically excluded under the Personal Auto policy. Life is easier when you protect your business.
