Contractors Beware!

Under new case law, contractors may be held secondarily liable for injuries incurred by their subcontractors’ employees (including temps,) even if the contractor has no control or authority over those employees. Any company using contractors should obtain proof of worker’s compensation insurance coverage and, further, may want to include indemnity clauses in its contracts to insulate itself from workers’ compensation liability.
