* Required Field

Most times, independent contractors will not have benefits like paid time off, health insurance, paid holidays, and workers’ compensation. Independent contractors who are injured while at work may not know that they are not covered by workers’ compensation and on the other hand, many may find it a surprise that they are actually eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
