Workers’ compensation compliance issues can wreak havoc on your business if you fail to comply with regulations in Florida. In addition to receiving a stop-work order, you may be required to pay a penalty assessment.
The Division of Workers’ Compensation may assess a penalty amount up to two times the amount you would have paid in insurance premiums during the last two years. This can result in a significant fee and will only increase if your business continues to operate under a stop-work order.
