Workers Compensation is needed whether you have one employee or several hundred employees. It takes just one injury to disrupt your daily operation. As a business owner, you most likely are concerned with protecting your employees from injury as well as meeting workers compensation requirements in your state. Getting the right workers comp insurance for your business can help you meet all of those goals. Since Nielsen & Associates has access to many carriers doing business in California, we consistently find the best rates in the industry.
In 2018, the California Supreme Court’s ruling in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court made it harder for companies to classify workers as independent contractors. This unanimous decision has implications for a multitude of industries, including real estate, insurance, beauty salons, gig economy and many others. The ruling is likely to lead many employers in California to immediately question whether they should reclassify independent contractors rather than face stiff fines for misclassifications, employment lawyers have said.
