Recent Changes to Workers Compensation Requirements for Contractors

Recent legislation has modified the rules and regulations concerning workers compensation insurance for contractors.

  • AB 397 – Contractors must recertify workers’ compensation exemptions when they renew their licenses.
  • AB 2219Roofing contractors must have workers’ compensation insurance, even if the contractor does not have any employees.

Failure to maintain insurance where required may result in an automatic suspension of a contractor’s license. Accordingly, it is imperative that contractors ensure they have the appropriate coverage before performing any work.
