Posted by on Sep 9, 2010 in Contractors Insurance, Insurance

New Hampshire has passed legislation regarding subcontractors effective 6/14/2010. It is important to note that a Vermont employee/employer working in New Hampshire must carry coverage A in NH and comply with NH laws. Under the Workers compensation law there must be a written agreement signed by the employer and the person providing services on or about the date of employment, which also describes the services to be performed by this subcontractor. Downey Insurance helps employers to understand the Workers compensation Laws. Most employers assume that if they hire subcontractors they do not have to carry Workers compensation Insurance on that subcontractor. This is incorrect, the subcontractor must carry their own Workers Compensation policy or the employer having the work performed must carry or add them to their own policy.
