Affordable Minority Business Worker’s Comp/Health/Disability to Make You Competitive
Too often minority-owned businesses are strained by the high cost of Worker’s Compensation, Disability Benefits and Health Insurance. This has made it difficult for minority business to be competitive until the Oriska Insurance Company’s 24 Hour package. Oriska Insurance offers a unique 24-hour protection portfolio to minority-based enterprises by jointly administering workers compensation, health and disability coverage. Oriska Insurance delivers workers compensation benefits and traditional health care in such a way that the costs decrease for employers while workers have immediate access to medical care.
Empowering Minority-Owned and Disadvantaged Businesses
Black owned small businesses are nearly twice as likely to be denied credit, including surety bonding, making it harder for project managers and contractors to give them work. But Oriska Insurance focuses on granting minority, veteran, disabled and woman-owned business the access to surety bonds. This allows project managers and contractors of large public works projects to hire you in confidence. Oriska Insurance Company removes the glass ceiling that often limits income potential for minority-owned businesses.
Keeping You in Compliance and Focused on the Job
Surety Bonding with Oriska Insurance also protects minority-owned businesses because we guarantee compliance with the Davis-Bacon Act and the New York State Labor Law. The benefits required by this legislation can be daunting for a small business which is why Oriska Insurance also provides worker’s compensation, health, disability and long-term care Insurance. Oriska Insurance received approval from insurance regulators to accommodate the specific needs of minority business and disadvantaged business. No other company can provide all this to ensure minority businesses are protected and can compete on a level playing field.
Bonding and beyond: We Help If You Run Into Problems
We make it our business that you succeed. Oriska Insurance works within the goals outlined by the Metropolitan Transportation Agency and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey ensuring that every minority business has mentors to guide them through the process of securing certification and bidding on contracts.

Surety Bonding with Oriska Insurance helps even when you have difficulty delivering the services expected of you. If a minority-owned business defaults, we can take over the work, rebid it, or pay the penalty amount to the general contractor on the bond (which usually amounts to the contract price). This level of protection allows minority businesses a true opportunity to participate in the public works bidding process while guaranteeing the Project Manager a level of security. Everyone becomes a winner.
