Insurance Coverage Requirements
All NJ employers, not covered by Federal programs, must have workers’ compensation coverage or be approved for self-insurance. Even out-of-state employers may need WC coverage if a contract of employment is entered into in NJ or if work is performed in NJ.
The law requires every employer to post and maintain in a conspicuous place or places in and about the worksite, a form prescribed by the Commissioner of the Department of Banking and Insurance, stating that the employer has secured WC insurance coverage or has qualified with the Department of Banking and Insurance as a self-insured employer.
For insured employers, the notice must include the name of the insurance carrier and other items as required by the Department of Banking and Insurance. To obtain copies of this notice, employers should contact their insurer.
