Workers' Comp Exemption

Each state has its own laws and requirements regarding when and how employers are allowed to opt-out of coverage under their workers' compensation policy. Some states make it easier than others because they don't require anything to be filed. Other states require special inclusion or exclusion affidavit documentation. Failure to comply often causes employers to have to pay premium on themselves even when they wanted to be excluded form coverage.

Waiver of Subrogation

A waiver of subrogation means that a business and their insurance company is foregoing all rights to file suit, or seek damages, from another business. This is common in the construction industry as builders attempt to protect their company from negligence. A workers' comp waiver of subrogation does not prevent an injured employee from filing a lawsuit for damages. This coverage typically add about $100 to the cost of a work comp policy.

Certificate of Insurance

A Certificate of Insurance is a document that serves as evidence of insurance or proof of coverage. Certificates indicate your current coverages and policy limits. Insurance Agencies issue on an insured's behalf and they often list a third party as a certificate holder. This means they should be notified if a policy cancels prior to expiration. Requests for any special wording should be carefully checked against the policy language before being added to a certificate as they can create legal issues with coverage.
