Where a health care system (“the system”) owned a children’s clinic and contracted with a service company for the latter to provide cleaning services at the clinic, the system was not the statutory employer of the service company’s employees. Accordingly, where a service company employee sustained slip and fall injuries, the system was not immune from tort liability in a civil action against it. The system was not performing “contract work” [see § 440.11(1), Fla. Stat.] for a third party. It could, therefore, not sublet a portion of that contract work to the service company.
