In California, only “employees” are covered by the workers’ compensation system. Independent contractors are not covered in California, and contractors often end up paying out-of-pocket the costs associated with their on-the-job injuries.

If you are injured on the job, it’s imperative to get help from an experienced workers’ compensation…Read More

Independent contractors are excluded from seeking workers’ compensation benefits under California law. However, California law does not clearly specify who is and who isn’t an employee or an independent contractor. That’s a determination that’s made, ultimately, by bureaucrats. Nevertheless, the rapidly-evolving 21st-century business environment often requires freelancers and part-time workers to perform tasks that historically were performed by full-time, “official”…Read More
