Mount Royal, NJ asked in Business Law and Workers' Compensation for New Jersey

Q: I own an LLC company in New Jersey. We were given permission to perform work for a property management company.

Once we submitted their invoice for payment, they told us the check was ready, but they wouldn’t release it without proof of workman’s comp insurance. Is this legal? They allowed us to perform the work before ever requesting proof of any type of insurance?

A: Did you have a contract, did they have a contract? Anyway you are required to have workers compensation insurance by law. Sounds like you need to get yourself a good contract written by a lawyer.
