Workers’ compensation insurance is not mandatory for employers in Texas. However, should an injured employee file a negligence suit, employers that do not carry such insurance lose certain common-law defenses.
Workers’ compensation coverage can be obtained through licensed insurance companies, including the Texas Mutual Insurance Company, 800-859-5995.
The workers’ compensation classification code for Motion Picture Production is 4360. The amount of premium may vary by insurance company.
Companies entering Texas from other states can usually arrange to extend their workers’ compensation coverage to Texas, provided that their insurance company is licensed to operate in Texas.
