Yes. Kentucky work comp requirements are very specific. If you have one or more employees, you have required to provide work comp coverage for those employees.

What states require employer to have workmans comp?

All states require employers to carry Workers' Comp or remain liabile to the workers themselves. Most states have exemptions for some employers, such as those with fewer than 5 employees, or employers whose sole workforce is comprised of partners in the company. Texas is the only state in which Workers' Comp is 100% voluntary, yet again, the employer remains liable to the worker and would have to pay out of pocket for claims. Further, by not carrying Workers' Compensation, the worker is free to sue the employer - something he's not able to do if the employer carries Workers' Comp unless the employer's guilty of GROSS negligence. See the attached link, "Should I Carry Workers' Compensation?" for additional information.

I am a sub contractor do i have to pay worker's compensation?

Workers Comp varies from state to state but in general, if you are an employer you must pay for Workers Comp for your employees. Most large contractors require their subs to show evidence of Workers Comp coverage. This is because the insurance companies will charge the GC if they can't show evidence of all workers being covered under other policies. So in general, yes, sub contractors have to pay for Workers Comp.
