Certificate filing: N/A

In the state of Missouri you are required to carry workers' compensation insurance if you have five or more employees, unless you are in the construction industry, then you must carry workers' compensation insurance if you have one or more employees. Employers that don't have the required number of employees or who have employees in the exempt categories may "elect" to come under the law and carry workers' compensation insurance. Exempt employers that decide not to purchase workers compensation insurance or to self-insure remain exposed to civil lawsuits brought by employees who are injured during work. Sole proprietors and partners are not themselves covered unless they elect to be covered; close family member-employees and members of a limited liability company are presumed to be covered unless they opt out.

Railroad, postal, and maritime workers are covered under federal laws and not by Missouri Workers' Compensation Laws. Other exceptions include: farm labor, domestic servants in a private home, occasional labor performed for or related to a private household, qualified real estate agents, direct sellers, volunteers of a tax exempt organization where such volunteers are not paid wages and adjudicators, sports officials or contest workers for interscholastic activity programs or amateur youth programs who are not employed by the sponsor of the event.

Extraterritorial provisions: Yes
Duration: While an employee temporarily works outside Ohio
Reciprocity: Yes, but conditional
Statute: O.A.C. 4123-17-23, O.R.C.4123.54, O.R.C.4123.292.
Certificate filing: Not required

Extraterritorial coverage is provided for Ohio employees working temporarily outside of Ohio, but the claim must be filed with the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation. If a claim is filed in another state and decided on the merits, any right to Ohio benefits for the same injury, occupational disease, or death is waived. The duration of Ohio's extraterritorial coverage depends on whether the circumstances show that the employee is still working only temporarily outside of Ohio. For non-Ohio residents working temporarily in Ohio, there can be reciprocity concerning the employee's coverage under another state's workers' compensation laws. The employee is exempt from Ohio coverage if the other state exempts Ohio employers and employees working temporarily in that state. Ohio will give the same exemption that the other state gives to Ohio employers and employees, up to 90 days. Employees hired outside of Ohio and performing some work outside of Ohio may also be exempted from Ohio coverage by the filing of form C-112 with the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation and payment of an administrative fee. The Bureau's Legal Dept. has a memorandum explaining in detail Ohio's laws on interstate jurisdiction. It is at http://www.ohiobwc.com/downloads/blankpdf/InterstateJurisdictionLegalMemo.pdf

Vermont will accept an out-of-state employer's coverage while operating in Vermont provided that the insurance carrier is licensed to write insurance in Vermont and an amendatory endorsement is added to the policy adding Vermont for coverage purposes. A worker from another jurisdiction who is injured while working in Vermont can perfect a Vermont claim under certain circumstances. An out-of-state employer not providing required coverage for workers performing its business in Vermont may be found in non-compliance with Vermont law.
