What to expect of you get caught without a workers comp exempt certificate or workers comp coverage
Investigators conduct routine job-site inspections to ensure Employer compliance with the Workers' Compensation law.
When an Employer is operating without the required coverage, civil enforcement action is taken. This most often results in the issuance of a Stop-Work Order, requiring that the business cease all operations until it complies with the law and pays a penalty.
The penalty is equal to 2 times the amount the employer would have paid in manual premium within the preceding two year period.
A Stop-Work Order may also be issued if an employer
- understates or conceals payroll,
- misrepresents or conceals employee duties or
- otherwise attempts to avoid paying the proper amount of premium when purchasing a Workers’ Compensation Insurance policy.
- Not up to date with any workers comp exempt certificates issued by Florida or Alabama.
These violations and other actions may result in criminal charges as filed by the Division of Insurance Fraud.
It is against the law to:
- Work without workers' compensation insurance when required to do so
- Work in violation of a Stop-Work Order
- Make a false statement for the purpose of obtaining insurance coverage or to reduce premiums
- Fail to report an injury to the insurance carrier
- Discharge or threaten to discharge an employee for filing or attempting to file a workers' compensation claim
- Deduct workers' compensation premium from employees’ pay
- Misclassify an employee as an independent contractor
