Since North Dakota requires a license for any job that costs $4,000 or more, it is recommended that all contractors get licensed by the state. North Dakota’s Secretary of State handles the licensing requirements in the state and you can contact them through their website for your individual requirements.
North Dakota is very straightforward when it comes to protection for employees and therefore requires all contractors, subcontractors, and specialty contractors to carry workers’ compensation insurance if they have at least one employee. In North Dakota, workers’ compensation insurance can only be purchased through the state administered workers’ compensation fund. Self-insuring or private insurance plans are not permitted in the state. To determine if your business is required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance, you find out for sure with the WSI questionnaire.
Whether or not your business is required to be licensed in North Dakota, it’s imperative that you protect your business by mitigating your risks with contractors insurance from highly-rated insurance companies through Fairbanks Insurance Brokers.
General Liability Insurance from Fairbanks Insurance should be the foundation of your insurance portfolio. Your general liability policy provides protection from common risks such as:
Almost every state requires that contractors carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect their employees and uninsured subcontractors. This important coverage takes care of medical costs, lost wages, and a partial death benefit if your employees suffer a work-related injury or illness. Without workers’ compensation, your business would be held liable for any employee’s workplace injuries, illnesses, and lost wages.
Your business will be required to provide proof of commercial insurance coverage before being able to park commercial vehicles or trailers on the property of large customers and government entities and therefore any vehicle that is owned or used by your company should be insured under a Commercial Auto policy. Your commercial auto policy provides higher liability limits and there are typically no limits on the number of vehicles or drivers on the policy. Your commercial auto insurance provides protection for liability and damages or the replacement of your insured vehicles.
Contractors use many types of tools and special equipment that can be very expensive to replace if they are damaged or stolen at the jobsite, in transit, or in storage.
