How to Cover an Employee or Contractor in Washington and California

If you are a company and hire another company that does the same work as you, you will be assessed premiums for this ‘covered worker’ (described as an employee) unless he brings a helper or partner with him to your office or job site. But you are still subject to paying his premiums if you do not have the correct paperwork and/or he has flunked the independent contractor test.

To avoid this problem hiring subcontractors, get a free Labor and Industries or Employment Development Department account set up. Then, get them to get a Labor and Industries or Employment Development Department account set up. Then pay about 10 hours a month in premiums to these Departments. Problem solved. Oh yes, don’t for get to keep track of their hours while they work for you.
