Idaho Workers’ Compensation Eligibility
Workers’ compensation in Idaho is created to compensate workers who have been injured on the job for medical care and lost wages. Employees who are involved in workplace accidents or who suffer from occupational illnesses are eligible for these benefits.
In Idaho, employers in the private and public sector must provide workers’ compensation for all of their employees. Businesses with at least one full-time or part-time employee are required to provide workers’ compensation unless the worker is exempt.
According to Idaho law, the following are workers who are exempt from workers’ compensation coverage:
- Employees covered by Federal Workers’ Compensation Laws
- Real estate brokers and salespersons paid solely by commission
- Household domestic workers
- Casual employees who work occasionally or at irregular times not related to regular business activity
- Sole proprietors
- Working members of a partnership or limited liability company
- Corporate officers who own at least 10% of the company’s stock
- Outworker, who works on materials at a company but not under their control
- Pilots of agricultural dusting or spraying
- Officials of athletic contests in secondary schools (grades 7-12)
