In October of 2022, the Contractors State License Board issued Important Notices to HVAC and Concrete Contractors, notifying them of a new California law (Senate Bill 216, Chapter 978, Statutes of 2022).
This new law is effective January 1, 2023 and requires proof of workers’ compensation on file with the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) for C-20 Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and C-8 Concrete Contractors. As of that date, no license in these classifications will be issued, reinstated, reactivated, or renewed without proof of workers’ compensation insurance.
The letters received were unexpected because previously, a sole owner of an HVAC or Concrete business without any employees didn’t have any requirements for workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ Compensation Insurance insures a business’ employees in case of injury on the job.
The letter also lists Important Deadlines as follows.
– If the CSLB license renewal is due between January 1, 2023 and June 30, 2023: the CSLB will not renew the license without proof of workers’ compensation.
– If the CSLB license renewal is due after June 30, 2023: proof of worker’ compensation must be filed with CSLB by July 1, 2023.
-As of July 1, 2023, any contractor holding a C-8 or C-20 who has not filed proof of workers’ compensation will have that classification removed.
Many contractors in the construction trades have gone to the California State Fund Compensation Insurance for workers comp, without knowing that insurance agencies that specialize in the construction and artisan trades, like Cal Commercial Insurance, have insurance carriers that offer substantial rate savings for most of the building construction trades.
