What are the Workers’ Compensation Requirements for California Contractors?

California law requires every employer to carry insurance to cover the cost of occupational injuries and illnesses. This insurance requirement is mandatory even if you have only one part-time employee. Companies based out-of-state with employees hired in California must also have California workers’ compensation insurance. Contractors who do not have employees are required to file a certificate of exemption.
