Re: employment

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.

Re: employment

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.
