Meeting Defense Base Act Compliance
The Defense Base Act makes workers’ compensation insurance a federal requirement for government contractors working overseas. This act requires every employer to secure insurance according to the list of authorized insurance carriers. Included in the Act’s provisions are the following:
- Employers are liable for disability, medical, and death benefits to its employees following injury or death;
- Employees or surviving family members may sue the employer for tort damages as a result of failure to comply with the Act regulations;
- Employers not in compliance with the Act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $10,000 or imprisonment of no more than one year.
As a federal contractor, failure to provide international workers’ compensation insurance to your employees can mean serious consequences for your business. The Capital Group specializes in competitive low-cost DBA coverage.
