Michigan Employer Exclusion Forms

Employers that are permitted to exclude themselves from coverage must file Form BWC 337 with the Bureau of Workers' Disability Compensation. Exclusion only applies to employers who only employ people that can be excluded under the state Act. This is the only way an employer can comply with the insurance laws of Michigan without purchasing a workers comp policy. Once filed, the excluded employees are not allowed to receive workers compensation benefits.

General Contractors and Certificates of Insurance

General contractors can require Certificates of Insurance from all sub-contractors performing work on a job. They are not required to accept a state exclusion form. General contractors may be held responsible for work-related claims when sub-contractors do not have coverage or the proper exclusion form on file with the Bureau. They also have the right to sue an uninsured subcontractor for reimbursement of all compensation paid to the subcontractor.

To request more information on exclusion forms contact one of our Michigan Specialists at 888-611-7467, or call the Michigan Workers' Compensation Agency at 517-322-1195.

Employers who fail to purchase workers comp coverage in Michigan may be sued for civil damages by an injured employee.

Additionally, employers may be subject to a $1,000.00 fine for each day they are uninsured. They are also subject to no less than 30 days in jail up to 6 months.

What If An Employer or Carrier Goes Bankrupt?

In the event of bankruptcies, either the Self-Insurers' Security Fund or the Guarantee Fund will assume responsibility for making payments to injured workers in Michigan.

Return to Work Offers in Michigan

Employers are permitted to require injured workers to return to work doing a reasonable job that can be performed by the employee. The employee must accept the job or be subject to the loss of benefits. If the job pays less than what the employee was making prior to the claim, the employee will receive benefits from the insurance company based on the difference in wage. Employers are not required to offer a job to injured workers.
