For partnerships and LLC’s, the general partners or managing members’ ownership interest may now be held in a revocable trust. And for corporations, the ownership threshold for waiving workers’ compensation coverage was amended from 15% to 10% and the shares may now be held in a revocable trust. There are also new, specific, waiving provisions for professional corporations, cooperative corporations, and closely-held family businesses.
For owners who are now eligible for exclusion under SB189 and would like to elect exclusion on their policy, please return the new SB189 carrier-specific waiver forms at the time of new business or renewal.
