Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act Section 302 (a) & (b) provides that a contractor is responsible for the payment of compensation benefits to employees of uninsured subcontractors. Further, contractors shall not subcontract all or any part of contract unless the subcontractors used have presented proof of insurance. Consequently, all contractors should keep workers' compensation certificates of insurance on file to prove coverage for the jobs that were worked on by subs. If you feel that you are not in compliance with this law, then I would suggest that you speak with a worker's compensation lawyer ASAP. This link may help you find such a lawyer.
