As a soon to be licensed engineer I asked my boss if he wants me to take over some of the responsibility of stamping drawings when he's out of the office. He said he would like me to do that since he was the only PE and was quite the bottleneck for those weeks where he would spend more time out of the office than in it. I asked him how the liability insurance would work and he brushed it off saying that the insurance was for the business and would cover me as well. This doesn't seem right so I figured I'd ask here if this was common to have insurance for a business cover all of the practicing engineers. Should I press him further for details?
