As the person being paid to hire subcontractors you are acting as an *agent* for the actions of the workers you hired. Though the owner is paying the subcontractors individually, if you are overseeing their actions you are likely liable for any actions they undertake. This is especially true if the subs pay you any money for having gotten them the work. All that has to be established is that you were paid to get others to do the work.

Is workers compensation required in TX?

Texas is the only voluntary Comp state. But employers remain liable for the workers' injuries AND should opt out correctly - according to the state rules, filing their decision with the state and posting the proper notice to employees and to subcontractors who lack coverage. Why subcontractors who lack coverage? Because employers are liable to them too. Employers in all states need to realize they remain liable if they don't have coverage, that their employees and their employees' families can sue them - and in most states, subcontractors and their families can sue too.

When does an employer have to have workman's comp in Texas?

Texas is the only voluntary Comp state. But employers and general contractors remain liable for the workers' injuries (including subcontractors who lack Workers' Comp coverage) and should opt out correctly - according to the state rules, filing their decision with the state and posting the proper notice to employees & subcontractors. Employers in all states need to realize they remain liable if they don't have coverage, and that their employees and their employees' families can sue them. An alternative to Workers Comp for subcontractors (and employees who opt out of Workers' Comp) is Occupational Accident - especially if paired with Contingent Liability (contractors only - not employees), it can be cheaper than Comp and can in many ways provide even better coverage. It's not the same, though, and the Occupational Accident and Contingent Liability policies need to be compared closely.

Owners of stock in corporations (both publicly and privately held) have what is called "Limited Liability," which means that the owner is only liable up to the amount that he has invested into the business.
