For many IT Services companies, the placement of independent contractors (whether on 1099 or corp.–to–corp. basis) is an integral part of their business. Before allowing you to place an independent contractor at its worksite, clients often require that the independent contractor have insurance coverage in force. Given that the placement of independent contractors potentially has significant tax and liability implications for IT staffing firms, it should be handled by a professional who is both knowledgeable about insurance and the specific issues associated with IT consultants operating as independent contractors.
That is why TechServe Alliance Business Services, the TechServe Sponsored Insurance Program, has developed a quick and easy process for independent contractors to obtain required insurance coverage for themselves. Just direct an independent contractor to the “Request a Quote” link below and a knowledgeable insurance professional will be in touch directly with the independent contractor. In most instances, after providing some basic information over the telephone, an independent contractor can obtain the recommended coverage in just minutes.
