Your Staffing contractors now have general liability insurance for up to $10 million
We have increased our general liability insurance coverage for contractors, temps and temps to hire from $2 million to $10 million to better serve our customers. Additionally, we are carrying an additional $2 million for Errors and Omissions – after all there is nothing more expensive than bad data.
One of the pitfalls to hiring a 1099 contractor is that most likely, they do not have general liability insurance,which protects you, their client, and ensures their business continuity. Should they inadvertently damage your equipment or data, you will have to make a claim against your own insurance policy, if possible.
What is General Liability Insurance
General Liability Insurance is a part of the general insurance system of risk financing to protect the purchaser (the “insured”) from the risks of liabilities imposed by lawsuits and similar claims. It protects the insured in the event he or she is sued for claims that come within the coverage of the insurance policy.General liability insurance covers negligence, property damages, personal injury, advertising injury, electronic data, defense costs and possible loss of business.
Make sure your 1099s have insurance by putting them on a staffing contract through us. They will get W2s, be eligible for benefits and be covered under workers’ compensation. This will also help avoid an Employment Development Department (EDD) Audit.
Avoiding an Employment Development Department Audit
The Employment Development Department (EDD) conducts payroll tax audits of businesses operating in California. Here are some triggers that cause a company to get audited:
The 1099 independent contractor (IC) files an unemployment claim. This creates suspicion because ICs are NOT eligible for unemployment.
The 1099 IC files a workers’ compensation or disability claim against the company. If someone is truly an IC, they should carry workers’ comp and disability insurance on themselves because they are not eligible through an employer.
A worker receives a W-2 and a 1099 Form from the same employer in one year. This happens when they are converted from a 1099 IC to a direct hire of the company. But if they performed the same work as a 1099 IC and a W-2 employee, the IRS may wonder why they were not classified as an employee all along. Read the rest of this entry »
Money flows into life sciences appears to be on the rise.
This past February’s Biotech crash had a ripple effect for many companies. For example, following the crash, clinical trial starts dipped. This is according to CRO Activity Report 2Q 2016 report issued by BioPharm Insight.
