What Business Insurance Do You Have to Have in Tennessee?

Required by law:

  1. Workers compensation is required by law to pay for employees’ medical expenses and missed wages if they are hurt on the job.
  2. Unemployment insurance is also required by the state of Tennessee.

You probably also want to have:

  • Liability insurance will cover costs associated with claims of negligence and can help protect companies from expenses as the result of lawsuits, bodily injury, property damage, medical expenses, settlements, etc.
  • Property insurance will ensure the future of your business by protecting your investments in buildings, signs, furniture and equipment, inventory, fence and landscaping, etc.
  • Commercial auto insurance can cover any employees who may be driving company vehicles or traveling for work purposes. Visit DMV.org for more on commercial insurance requirements.
