  • Florida WC Comp Exemption Question

    I work for a small company with 4 employees. My boss and his son, president and vice-president respectively, have a Worker's Comp exemption. We are the parent company to a very small company that has no payroll, and is an active Florida corporation. There are no employees; no wages, no taxes deducted, no 941's filed.

    We changed insurance agents after 20+ years with Nationwide. The new guy says we have to have exemptions for the two bosses for the smaller company. It never came up when we had Nationwide.

    Since worker's comp is calculated by payroll, how can our small company be bound to having exemptions when we have no employees or payroll? It's not the $50 cost of the exemption, I just need proof that I am right or not. I don't mind being wrong, but it's gotta make sense to me.

    I've talked to the State, the agent, the underwiter and have gotten quite a slew of "interpretations." No one can point me to a Florida statute where this issue is addressed. If it's a dang law, it had to be voted on and most certainly recorded somewhere!

    Now the new agent wants us to find another. He says I am petty and don't tell the truth. I'm not stopping. I need to know. I want to know. My boss plays by the rules; it's my job to find out how the game is played.

    Can anyone help me????
