Should association use uninsured handyman?

Q: Our association has a handyman that we regularly use as an independent contractor. It is only him and sometimes a helper.

Our association has its own workers’ compensation insurance and general liability so I am not sure I understand the problem. What is your opinion on this topic?   Read the Q&A…………
