Workmen's Comp should be used when you have other employees working for you. The reason for this is to protect you. If one of your employees fell during working hours or cut themselves badly on a saw and you didn't have Workmen's Comp then they could sue you and it could end up costing you your business. Even when you hire a company to come in and put a new roof on your house you should ALWAYS ask if they have Workmen's Comp. Hope this helps. Marcy
