Yes, you must have insurance. It is provided through the state and part of the quarterly payments required to be sent to Tallahassee. Contact the State or go to myflorida . com for additional information.
You can contact the State for information on how to obtain appropriate unemployment insurance. As for a contract, if you would like a consultation please contact my office.
Every employer who pays wages is required to pay into the state pool for unemployment compensation up to a certain amount per employee. If you have an accountant filing forms 941 for you, you can ask them about your obligation to file a form UCT-6.
If you are a do-it yourselfer, you can go on myflorida.com and do a search for unemployment tax and obtain necessary forms and instructions.
As far as a contract goes, I don't recommend you try that yourself as there are many pitfalls for the uninitiated.
Many lawyers in your area are easily located on the Florida Bar's web site.
I am an employment lawyer and could probably help you out.
