To assist state and municipal entities in enforcing WCL §57, businesses requesting permits, licenses or seeking to enter into contracts must provide ONE of the following forms to the entity issuing the permit or entering into a contract:
- Certificate of Attestation of Exemption from NYS Workers' Compensation and/or Disability Benefits Coverage (CE-200); or
- Certificate of Workers' Compensation Insurance (C-105.2) (the business' insurance carrier will send this form to the government entity upon request) Please Note: The State Insurance Fund provides its own version of this form, the U-26.3; or
- Certificate of Worker's Compensation Self-Insurance (SI-12) (the business calls the Board's Self- Insurance Office at 518-402-0247); or
- Certificate of Group Worker's Compensation Self-Insurance (GSI-105.2) (the business' Group Self- Insurance Administrator will send this form to the government entity upon request).
Please note: Form CE-200 may be filed by out-of-state employers for a NYS workers' compensation exemption only if all work for the permit, license or contract is done outside of New York and no employees of the out-of-state business work in the state.
