    Quick question regarding workers compensation in California. I have an insurance agency that W2s the admin staff and 1099s the sales agents. Do the 1099 agents have to be included/rated on the comp policy or in the yearly audit?

    for as cheap as it is I would probably suggest adding them. However most states have a questionnaire that establishes if they are an employee or not

    I don't know about California, but in most other states W-2 and 1099 employees both count as employees for WC payroll purposes. The only way 1099 employees won't count as payroll is if they have their own WC policies and can give the employer a COI to turn in to their WC company. Then they are off the hook for them.
