Workers' Compensation for Vermont Businesses
Worker’s comp insurance for the Green Mountain State.
It doesn’t get more American than apple pie. Unless it’s Vermont apples in a made from scratch pie served on a red checkered table cloth. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, apple pie, cobbler, turnovers, pudding, baked, fried, you name it. Vermont is the Bubba of all things apple.
Vermont is the oldest member of the Union after the 13 colonies, it was the first state to join after the Constitution was ratified. Vermont entered the US as an independent nation, complete with its own currency and post office, but until only recent years, if you wanted a Driver’s License with a photo you had to drive to Montpelier. Plan lunch accordingly — they’re they only state capital without a McDonalds! Montpelier keeps things homey and local for a quaint, friendly feel.
While tech giant IBM is the state’s largest employer, 99% of Vermont companies are small businesses that employ 158,098 people. That doesn’t sound like much, but when cows outnumber humans 4 to 1, that equates to 59.4% of the population involved in private business.
Tourism is big business for Vermont. Skiing in the winter, hiking and biking in the summer, miles of apple orchards in the fall, and catching much needed inner peace while fly fishing the spring run-off. One of the early adopters of what was then called “snurfing” because of the similarity to surfing on snow, snowboarding is very popular and several large design and manufacturing companies have set up home base in Vermont. But, accidents happen and Vermont has a solid support system of medical professionals to help with all the broken legs. They’re well versed in fishing hook removal too!
Maple syrup is liquid gold to Vermonters, producing 35% of the country’s annual supply, much of it coming from home businesses and local farms. Wine production is a growing industry, with impressive vintages catching international attention.
With Ben & Jerry’s ice cream HQ’d in Vermont, we can understand how residents would be ranked fifth happiest in the nation. What does surprise us is that they’re ranked the healthiest state in the country. High five for that kind of willpower! A supporter of the community, the company gives their ice cream overrun and waste to hog farmers, but their big guys turn up their snouts to Mint Oreo. We have questions, starting with how there could possibly be “extra” Mint Oreo? Ever.
Workers compensation insurance is mandatory in Vermont, but you have choices. Cerity is there for small business owners when their chiropractors need their own adjustment after a tough newbie snurfer leaves their table, or a main street candy store apple artist gets a hot caramel scald. Protect your employees and yourself with Cerity.
