Yes! Most insurance policies require you to formally add independent contracts to the policy form, just like any other attorney, for coverage to be in place. Your policy form will only provide coverage for work the independent contractor does on behalf of your firm. If you don’t add them to your policy form, the firm will not have coverage for work the contractor does and has a major liability. Typically if the contract worker is working minimal hours, many insurance companies will not charge extra for them. Each carrier is slightly different, but we highly recommend you add all attorneys who do work for your firm to your policy.
