does a qualifier for a general contractor's license face any liability from the company's clients?

South Carolina

I am a small bathroom remodeling business, and am in need of a qualifier to get my contractor's license. I have someone willing t be our qualifier, but he wants to make sure that he would incur no legal liability in the event of an issue arising on a job. I assume that the liability would fall solely on the company?? We are an LLC. Do I assume correctly?

In South Carolina, a primary qualifying party must (among other things) "submit proof of full-time employment in a responsible management position by the entity for whom the applicant will be the primary qualifying party." Additionally, "a primary qualifying party may not take other employment that would conflict with the duties as primary qualifying party or diminish the ability to adequately supervise work performed by the licensee."

While a qualifying party may be subject to penalties or discipline under the relevant governing statutes, it does not appear that any additional or added liability is added to a qualifying party for the work done by the company that s/he qualified in absence of any direct fault.
