By purchasing your required Workers’ Compensation insurance policy through Mercer, funds are provided to help the Legal Services Trust Fund build a better justice system.
At times like these, it is important to be protected by the strength of your association. The State Bar’s Committee on Group Insurance Programs (COGIP), composed of member lawyers, provides program oversight by regularly reviewing many aspects of the program. This helps provide member protection during times of increasing workers’ compensation rates by providing stability as rate changes are reviewed. A long-term strategy is managed by COGIP.
Through your participation, funds are also provided to help the Legal Services Trust Fund build a better justice system.

Or, for immediate assistance, please call a Mercer Client Advisor at 877-446-7492.
*Sponsorship fees received by the State Bar of California from this and other insurance and member benefit programs provide major funding to the Legal Services Trust Fund, supporting legal services organizations throughout California.
Failing to have Workers' Compensation coverage is a criminal offense. Section 3700.5 of the California Labor Code makes it a misdemeanor punishable by either a fine of up to $10,000 or imprisonment in the county jail for up to one year, or both. Additionally, the state issues penalties of up to $100,000 against illegally uninsured employers.
If an employee gets hurt or sick because of work and you are not insured, you are responsible for paying all bills related to the injury or illness. You should be aware that Workers’ Compensation benefits are the only exclusive remedy for injuries suffered on the job when you are properly insured. If you are illegally uninsured and an employee gets sick or hurt because of work, that employee can file a civil action against you in addition to filing a Workers’ Compensation claim.
