  • WC for LP in CA

    If a Limited Parnership in CA has Limited Partners that work on an hourly basis, does the LP have to carry workers comp on these Limited Partners?
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    To find information regarding the Workers' Compensation Laws in California, go to this website, http://www.afscme.org/otherlnk/weblnk27.htm#state.

    Good luck.

      Thanks, but I cannot find any information on that site regarding whether Limited Partners are employees.

      If they are employees, that would mean they are self-employed. So it seems that they could opt out of workers comp.

      I am looking for clarification either way.

      Thanks.

        Workers Compensation

        According to the state website:



        Q. My spouse and I are the sole owners of our business. We have no employees. Are we required to obtain workers' compensation coverage? A. Generally, if you are the sole owners of the business, coverage for yourselves, is optional if you wish to pursue it. You would need to have workers' compensation coverage for any employees you may hire. You should consult with your attorney, insurance agent or broker, or carrier regarding the specifics of you situation and your options.



        Q. Are executive officers or directors of the company covered in its workers' compensation policy? A. Generally, all employees of the company, as legally defined, including corporate officers and directors, must be included in the policy unless they are the sole owners of the firm, in which case they may elect not to be covered. Several sections of the California Labor Code must be considered here. You should consult with your attorney, insurance agent or broker, or your carrier regarding the specifics of your situation.
