Short answer: No. The law in the state of North Carolina states that a sole proprietorship, partnership, or LLC is required to carry workman's compensation coverage if you have three or more employees. Employees can be full-time, part-time, regular, seasonal, or family members. Sole proprietors, partners, and managers and members of the LLC are NOT included in the headcount.
