New York: Bulletin covers requirements for out-of-state employers
When out-of-state employers send employees into the state to work and a full, statutory state workers' compensation insurance policy is not required, the employer must have workers' compensation coverage as required by its state, and New York must be listed on the information page of the employer's workers' compensation insurance policy. If the insurer writing the out-of-state employer's workers' compensation insurance policy is not authorized to write liability coverage in New York, the insurer must file a consent to board jurisdiction form. An out-of-state employer having a new workers' compensation insurance policy issued on or after March 1, 2011, by a private insurer not licensed in New York will not qualify for specific exemptions in the out-of-state employer's policy unless the carrier files the consent form.
