    It's the law his employer has to have it. Unless he did it on the side but if he was working for someone the employer must have it. If he has permanent damage I would be calling a workers comp office but every employer must have it it's not optional

    Look at you, burning through all the threads like a blow-'n-go hack, only reading the first post before throwing in your 2 cents.

    As mentioned earlier, companies under a certain size are NOT required to have workman's comp.

    And that's because he was told that by his employer correct? Never believe your employer. They lie. His employer doesn't want to have a claim against him that's what's going down.

    Depends on the state, which OP didn't tell us. Some states require coverage with only one employee, some only require it for 4 or more employees.

    That's what the employer will tell you. It depends on the kind of work that they're doing construction they have to offer it almost every state or give the option to go in. His best bet is a contact the labor board or workers comp lawyer and make sure he gets the facts if you got seriously hurt his employer is financially motivated to tell him there's nothing they can do. I've had employers lied to me so many times in the past about all kinds of stuff one time it was over unemployment. They weren't going to give me hardly any hours so I told him I file an unemployment claim against them they said I can't do it because I'm still employed and I had to remind them I can do it if I'm not getting enough hours. Employers many of them are lowlifes and will lie through their teeth. Sounds like the person he's working for it's kind of that low-life category

    In his state if his employer has less then 3 employees. He isn't required to carry workmen's comp.

    Just because you had a few bad employer experiences doesn't mean all of them are evil and need to be punished like criminals. Relax and don't get set on absolutes - there's nuance in every situation that you may not know the full story about.
