I own a company with no employees. We are subcontracting a job in another state and have 5 workers. We are getting paid 1 check from the general and paying the workers 1099's. So i have 3 questions. What do i need to get from the contractor showing that he is covering the insurance on everyone?
Response 1: Copy of the insurance policy.
Can i be liable if the workers do not pay their taxes?
Response 2: No.
I I make the workers employees do i have to insure them or can the general still do that?
Response 3: You have to have coverage for your own employees.
