Certificate of Attestation of Exemption (CE-200) Request CE-200

A Certificate of Attestation of Exemption (CE-200) can only be used to attest to a government entity that an applicant requesting a license, permit or contract is not required to carry workers' compensation and/or disability and Paid Family Leave benefits coverage. It CAN NOT be used to respond to the Board regarding periods of non-compliance or penalties issued for not having insurance coverage. It also CAN NOT be used to show another business or that business's insurance carrier that coverage is not required.

Only two types of entities may apply for a certificate to show they are exempt from the requirement to provide workers' compensation and/or disability and Paid Family Leave benefits coverage when obtaining a license, permit or contact with a government agency:

  1. New York entities with no employees
  2. Out-of-state entities obtaining a contract or license where all the work is performed outside of New York State
