Workers' Compensation for New Hampshire Businesses

Worker’s comp insurance for the White Mountain State.

Small and often overlooked, big adventure awaits in New Hampshire! Small businesses are helping visitors check off their bucket lists with hot air balloon rides, zip lining, exploring polar caves, mountain climbing, historic train rides, kayaking, and antiquing.

No New Hampshire day is complete without fresh seafood, like local haddock, steamers and lobster rolls. When tourists look for idyllic seaside towns and getting back to nature, New Hampshire is the place to be!

Times are a changing in New Hampshire, and New Hampshire offers a lot more than tourism. An original colony and the ninth state to enter the Union, New Hampshire’s olden days of cotton and wool mills and ship building are being replaced by smart technology factories. In 2013, high tech manufacturing paid 18% of all wages earned. However, the healthcare industry is nipping at manufacturing’s heels to be the economic top dog and catering to the state’s aging population. Filled with top research hospitals, clinics, biotech and pharmacology, opportunities abound for small businesses in both of these fields.

New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is low and the state enjoys a high growth rate, a perfect environment for a small business to flourish. There are 133,676 small businesses in New Hampshire that employ 291,348 employees. That’s 50.5% of the workforce and 99% of companies in the state.

Over half the current residents were not born here, but exist alongside the old-school New Hampshirites. You know the ones. We see them every four years on primary day, eating a hearty breakfast and wearing flannel. The mix of new and old is refreshing and intimate. The fresh air is said to be more Maine than Maine itself, and the leaf peeping is unsurpassed at Lake Winnipesaukee, the famous site of the lake vacation home in “What About Bob?” Adam Sandler, a native of New Hampshire, references summer camp here in his hilarious “Thanksgiving Song,” and it’s the home state of Aerosmith. Do the trail markers say “Walk This Way?”

Accidents happen, and you’ll be happy your small business is covered with Cerity. Bonus, you’re complying with state law too! Maple syrup it all and know that break room spills and slips are covered, even when the staff has a blueberry pancake cookoff. When your antique store worker sits down on a chair that collapses because termites had a grand feast, we’ve got that injury covered too.

Cerity is here to help New Hampshire small business workers’ comp needs, so get a quick online quote today and get back to living your dream!

Explore commonly asked questions about business type, industry and state.

To put it simply, your business is covered. Just like that.In most cases, all of your employees are covered by workers' compensation insurance, including subcontractors (given they provide you a Certificate of Insurance). However, a Certificate of Insurance (COI) isn't a guarantee of coverage (policy may have cancelled since issuance). You should request periodic COIs throughout the contract.
Workers' compensation insurance provides all state required benefits, including reasonable and necessary medical treatment and wage replacement, for employees injured in the course and scope of employment.
In most states, it’s required for small business owners to obtain workers’ compensation coverage. In the event that an employee is injured in the course and scope of your employment, workers' compensation insurance protects you from costly lawsuits and provides state required compensation for the employee, including lost wages and medical expenses.
The estimated premium is based on estimated payroll (at the beginning of the policy). The final premium is based on actual payroll (at the end of the policy) for the policy period (usually 12 months). In the event your payroll changes, we'll work with you on adjusting your policy.
Yes, the workers' compensation policy covers all of your employees. Significant changes to your payroll should be reported to Cerity. This will help mitigate having a large additional premium due at the end of your policy period.
