According to Nevada's Workers' Compensation laws, all employers who have at least one worker must carry proper Workers' Comp coverage. Subcontractors, independent contractors, and their employees must also be covered (unless they are considered independent enterprises). Construction trades are required to have Workers' Compensation Insurance.
