Several factors are used to determine whether a contractor qualifies for independent contractor status under the Workers' Compensation Code. During your annual premium audit, you will be asked to provide documentation of either proof of a valid workers' compensation policy or an Affidavit of Exempt Status for any contractor performing work for your business during the policy period. For more information about the Affidavit and fact sheet click here.
However, simply filling out an Affidavit of Exempt Status does not guarantee a contractor will be recognized as an independent contractor during your premium audit. Click here to review information about your responsibilities and potential liability when hiring subcontractors.
