Does an employer have to carry unemployment insurance?

Postby dubh65 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 11:06 am

I recently accepted a job with a company , and he stated he wanted to hire me in as a sub-contractor,and pay me a percentage per job. I filled out a form so that he can write me off on his taxes. What I want to know is does he still have to pay into unemployment insurance, and workers compensation. If things get slow am I going to be able to file a claim, and if I should happen to get hurt can I file workers comp claim even though I am a sub-contractor.

He wants to treat you as an independent contractor.

Independent Contractors are not eligible for Unemployment or Workers Compensation.

An "employer" does. However, if you are a subcontractor, then the company is not your "employer".

A company with only subcontractors, and no "employees", does not.

A company with both subcontractors and employees does, but only for the employees, not for the subcontractors.

You cannot get unemployment or worker's comp, because you are not an "employee".

No, not if you are a contracted worker. No unemployment, no WC, no State Disability.

Depends on state rules. If you are a contractor usually not.
