Does an employer have to carry workmans comp on a 1099 employee?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Re: Workmans Comp.
the short answer is "yes." An employee, regardless of the type of employee is entitled to make a claim for compensation and therefore should be covered. The exception is only for independent contractors, who are separate businesses and licensed as contractors.
Worker's compensation can be very tricky but it is always safe to assume that all your workers are entitled to make a claim. A labor attorney can assist you with managing your labor force more efficiently.
