Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

The answer to your question is yes, as a condition of your policy, you will have to give them over. There may be other things that you may have to turn over as well to help out your case including:

Payroll summary for the last policy period; Cash Summary (if you pay workers in cash instead of through direct deposit); Federal or State Employment Quarterly Reports; Monthly Sales Tax Reports; The amount of money that you have paid your Subcontractor; A copy of all of the 1099 forms for all Subcontractors that you have paid out over the year; and a Certificate of Insurance for the Audited Term.

It's a common procedure that occurs when people are self-employed. It's how the insurance company manages their risk and it's legal. I'm very sorry.

What other questions did you have for me at all?

Ok thank you was unaware since this never happened before and have had liability insurance for yrs

I certainly understand. I think you'll be okay. It's not out of the ordinary.

Also, the pleasure is all mine! Unless you have additional questions, there’s just a few other things I’d like you to know before we wrap up this conversation:

  1. Could you look on your screen and provide me a star rating? 5-stars are always appreciated.

  2. You can save me as a favorite if you would like.

  3. For your benefit, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

  4. Don’t forget, if you haven’t already, you can always sign up for a membership with Just Answer and start asking more questions for cheap.

  5. Don’t forget to tell your friends about justanswer.com!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
