Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute i…n the nature of a workers' compensation act. The exemption also applies to your survivors.

A professional handyman in Maryland should hold a General Contractors license, which is issued by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission. In order to bid on a job or enter i…nto a contract with a homeowner, one must have a license. If, however, you wish to pay someone directly to do work on your house, you may do so - but you have no legal recourse if he does not complete the work, does the work poorly, does damage to your home, steals from you, or get hurts on the job. For this and many other reasons, it is highly advisable that you only hire professionals who are "licensed, bonded, and insured."

All states require WC, but there is some confusion because some have exemptions or because Texas makes the *insurance* voluntary. Texas is the only voluntary state. … Even without coverage, the employer is responsible to the worker for job-related injuries and usually, injuries related to safe entering and exiting of the job site.

Workers' Compensation varies from state to state, so you really need to check what your local state law allows. However, as a general rule, if you are injured on the… job and DO NOT file for Workers' Compensation benefits, the "exclusive remedy" rule that bars your bringing a private tort claim does not apply. Employers are keen to have employees report ANY workplace incident right away. This does help documents when and where such accidents happen, but it also ends an important legal right the employee might have available to them. There is no duty to disclose what legal rights a worker is surrendering when they are filing a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits. In incidents where serious injuries are sustained, a worker could easily lose valuable legal rights by applying for Workers' Compensation benefits before consulting legal counsel.
I personally think everyone should be covered by Comp or an alternative, such as Occupational Accident or a self-insured plan. Even if you have health insurance, if you're inj…ured on the job - even if it's in an auto accident on your way to the bank, if you're seriously injured and can't work for years, who will pay those health insurance premiums and lost wages? Comp has lifetime medical for work-related injuries. Occupational Accident is available in most states, and you can customize it for yourself and for any executives, partners or others that may be eligible to be excluded - or for any employee or 1099 contractor who opts out (rare.) It can work alone or in conjunction with Comp. Some states provide an exemption from having to carry insurance in your case, but I encourage you to take care of yourself.
If you work a "free lance" or "pt/temp" job, you must claim it with Unemployment. If the gross money you earned was more than what U.E. pays for the week, you will not receive… a pymt. for that week. You must give all info. re: the co. who hired you for the job, date worked, gross pay. The week you don't get paid for will be added to the end of your U.E. time period. You won't lose it. Only problem: Unemployment sends forms to be filled out by the company that you worked for that that make it appear like the company hired you and it sort of freaks out the company so they don't want to use you again.
Proof of income and your tax records are usually required as proof. There are some companies out there though which will deal with the loan without some of these details.
