Do we offer Workers' Comp Insurance?

OOTB provides Workers' Compensation Insurance coverage from a top-rated provider on all payrolled employees and we can issue proof of insurance upon request.

Who needs to be payrolled?

The Department of Labor generally considers workers to be employees rather than contractors, even if they are only hired for a single day’s work. The California Supreme Court adopted the “ABC test” on April 30, 2018 narrowing the window of independent contractor classification.

The Court held that it is the burden of the hiring entity to establish that a worker is an independent contractor who was not intended to be included within the applicable wage order’s coverage.

To meet this burden, the hiring entity must establish each of the following three factors, commonly known as the “ABC test”:

  • A: that the worker is free from the control and direction of the hiring entity in connection with the performance of the work, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in fact; and

  • B: that the worker performs work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business; and

  • C: that the worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation, or business of the same nature as the work performed.
