Workers Comp FAQs
With the passage and signing of Assembly Bill 2883, new rules have been created regarding who can be excluded from workers’ compensation coverage.
AB 2883 revises the definition of an employee for coverage to include certain officers and directors of private corporations and working members of partnerships and limited liability companies. Beginning on Jan. 1, 2017 officers, directors and partners are required to be covered under the employer’s workers’ comp policy unless they meet the revised definition.
Under the new definition, officers, directors, and general partners can only opt out of coverage by signing a waiver under penalty of perjury and filing the waiver with their employer’s insurer. Additionally, if the company is a corporation the officer/director/partner must now own at least 15% of the issued outstanding stock.
If you haven’t received a notice from your insurer including the necessary forms to complete, call your agent as soon as possible.
