Work Comp exclusion definitions are changing again!
Carriers have been put on notice concerning the passing of SB189, which addresses Workers Compensation definition of employees and the resultant exclusion for coverage.
Without going into all the confusion prior legislation has caused, the new verbage boils down to this...When someone is attempting to be excluded from coverage......"Each sample includes a note that the waiver – and this is a critical point – must be signed by the person requesting to be excluded from workers’ comp coverage – “company representatives may not sign on behalf of the individual,” the Department notes.
Yes, that makes it a little bit more work on all parties, but excluding someone can still be done......IF you meet the new guidelines as well. Be sure to check out the full article to read the new definition of employee.
