How long do I have to work for my Florida employer to be covered under workers' comp?

There's no time limit on how long you have to work for an employer in Florida in order to be covered by workers' comp. The minute you stepped into that door and start performing services that you're going to receive payment for, you're covered. I've had people who have been injured on the first few hours of working for their employer and they're entitled to the same benefits as someone who's been there for 25 years.
