I have been hired by an out of state contractor to pull some permits and run the work. We are in New Jersey and was wondering if the employees that we are going to hire are to be under my insurance and payroll or can they be under the out of state contractors payroll and insurance.
Thanks for the help

Welcome to ECN forums from one of the 'Jersey Guys'.

Your question may have more legal ramifications then can be answered here. You should be checking with your accountant for any tax related issues, and your insurance agent for insurance related issues.

The OOS contractor may or may not have the required insurance coverage here (NJ). He should be able to provide you with certificates.

Also, keep in mind the requirements of the Board for anything that may be deemed a 'joint venture'!

Take care


John

I agree with the post above because it could be different for each state and insurance company. There might be a way for you to account for different types of taxes in your payroll software. Generally, the solutions have this type of capability.


Anyone using online payroll?

"Supervise" is one of the requirements of a licensee here in NJ; supervise your employees on every job. That's not a verbatum quote, but my words.

A check with your accountant, and your attorney is a prudent place to start.

This type of arrangement may be considered 'covering' by some authorities, so.....be careful.
