Florida Construction Licensure and Workers' Compensation


If you want to be licensed you'll need coverage.

Working in the construction field comes with its own risk of hazardous and potentially dangerous situations for yourself and the laborers you employ. As detailed in Chapter 489.114, in order to become a Florida licensed contractor you must produce evidence that you have workers’ compensation coverage. If you can’t then you won’t be allowed to get licensed. This white paper reviews the requirement of workers’ compensation for original and renewal licensure.
