This week, MEMIC began sending out information to insurance agents and customers about an impending law change in Maine which will redefine who is, and isn't, an independent contractor for purposes of workers' compensation. Any business in the construction industry or anyone who hires subcontractors in any area of construction should learn about this new law.
Here's a link to our news release.
While the Maine law is featured here, independent contractor laws are under review in many states across the country. If you're unsure, you should consult with your insurance agent to make sure you're handling this aspect of your risk management program appropriately.
