We are proud to be a leader in the support of a new Bill for Congress. We are so tired of contractors "pulling strings" by using 1099 "employees" and them not being covered by any type of liability insurance. 1099 means "independent". Independent means your company policy DOES NOT COVER THEM and if/when one of them gets injured, or messes up something so big you want to turn your back and run, they don't sue you...they sue the property owner. The worst part is that you, as a business owner, may never know that your customer got sued. With that said, we have initiated a local ordinance to be signed throughout Cincinnati and the surrounding communities to cover this issue and are pushing for a national Bill in this next 24 months. Ordinance as defined: Contractors that employ (1) or more "Independent Contractors" must keep a current copy of that contractors insurance policy on record and must make it available just as they would a workers compensation certificate. If they fail to do so, fines and other penalties will be enforced. Please review this proposal and if you find it to be as NEEDED as we do please post your response or contact me for a copy of the petition. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated by the entire industry.
