What Role Does An Insurance Agent Play In South Dakota Workers Compensation?

According to the South Dakota Department of Labor website (https://dlr.sd.gov/workers_compensation/default.aspx), though it is recommended, there is no law in South Dakota requiring any employer to carry workers' compensation insurance. Thus, for employers that want workers' compensation insurance, insurance agents should be able to explain to their clients how workers compensation in South Dakota works, understand their clients' past and potential claims, then be able to get quotes for coverage.

Insurance Agents also should understand the state's workers comp rules and requirements, how to deal with accommodation and return-to-work requests, management of the claim, proper account handling procedures, and how to fight fraudulent claims.
