Paul Tomaszewski Posted August 17, 2011 Share Posted August 17, 2011 Well the day has come for us to bring on some part-time folks to help out in the distillery on a regular basis, and I know that employees are not considered "equipment," but this was the best fit I could find as far as topics go. For those of you who have experience with covering your employees under workers' comp, I was wondering about your experience for those working IN the distillery (vs. tasting room, sales, or something not related to day-to-day production operations). I know that not every insurance company is the same, but the cost to cover someone as a distillery employee (as quoted to me) is in the neighborhood of 90 cents to a dollar per 100 dollars of salary vs. a gift shop employee being a fraction of that. Has anyone had different experiences with this and, if so, were the employees covered under a different category than simply "distillery operations?" Maybe there's a "small-scale production facility" category or something like that? If there is a microbrewery category that isn't as high as a standard-sized brewery, than maybe we can work the channels to develop a "micro distillery" category.
