FUBA Workers’ Comp is sponsored by the Florida United Businesses Association (FUBA). FUBA is a not-for-profit trade association representing the interests of small businesses throughout the state of Florida.
Membership in FUBA for our policyholders is mandatory. This is because the Florida workers’ compensation law and its accompanying regulations require that all businesses in a self-insurance fund have a common interest. One way to establish a common interest is to have all policyholders become members of a Fund’s sponsoring trade association. Our members comply with the law requiring commonality by joining FUBA.
FUBA’s annual dues are $85.00 and are initially billed with the down payment when you bound your policy. Dues will be billed annually after the first year of membership. Failure to maintain an active membership in FUBA constitutes non-compliance and a cancellation of your workers’ compensation insurance policy will be issued.
Joining FUBA gives our members access to:
Labor Law Poster
An “All-in-One” labor law poster is provided free to new policyholders, along with their policy information kit. This poster contains all required state and federal postings. Members will always stay in compliance with the State and Federal employment notice laws because FUBA notifies you if any of these required posters change and will provide any revised postings at no charge or for or a nominal charge.
This newsletter is published monthly and sent to all FUBA members. It keeps you informed of legislation and regulations that may affect your business, and explains how to stay in compliance.
FUBA’s full-time Governmental Relations staff lobbies the Florida legislature on behalf of its members. FUBA makes sure that lawmakers hear the small business point of view when they are voting on legislation.
