Do LLC sole member/managers need W/C insurance for

Customer Question
Do LLC sole member/managers...

Do LLC sole member/managers need W/C insurance for themselves in CA if they have one employee? I know the employee must be covered.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

No employment agreement. She owns 100% of the LLC.

Executive officers and managers or directors of corporations or LLCs must be included in workers’ compensation coverage, unless the corporation is fully owned by the ,m anager or directors and officers. If the directors and officers fully own the corporation, then they may elect to be excluded from workers’ compensation benefits. Fully owned corporations may want to discuss the option to include or exclude their officers and directors with a licensed commercial broker-agent.

So, if the manager of the LLC is the sole owner then they are exempt from covering themself with WC coverage.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
