Your guide to corporate exclusion

Corporate Exclusion

Senate Bill 45 passed in the 2013 legislative session amends the Workers’ Compensation Act, to allow corporations which have no employees except directors and/or officers, to file a notice with the Labor Commission to exclude themselves from workers’ compensation benefits. This exclusion is limited to no more than five directors/officers.

It should be noted that corporations that contract out their work, for example construction contractors, are not eligible for this exclusion filing, those corporations should apply for a workers’ compensation coverage waiver.

If the corporation has a workers’ compensation policy in place, director/officer exclusion is reported as an endorsement to the workers’ compensation policy.

Eligible corporations may fill out the Corporation Directors and Officers Workers’ Compensation Exclusion Form, and submit by fax 801-530-6804 or email.
