Out-of-state contractors must adhere to the following Florida's workers' compensation requirements and understand the consequences for failing to meet those requirements.
|Arkansas||Montana (does not apply to the construction industry)||Utah|
|Georgia||North Dakota||Washington (state)|
Failure to meet these requirements will result in the Division issuing the out-of-state contractor a Stop-Work Order, requiring the cessation of all its Florida business operations and penalizing the business two times the amount it would have paid in workers’ compensation premium during the time it was out of compliance in Florida, for up to two years.
NOTE: For most construction trades, Florida requires contractor licensing. To learn about Florida's licensure requirements and the trades that must comply, please visit www.myfloridalicense.com.
