NE Workers' Comp: Key Details

  • The few exceptions to Nebraska's Workers' Compensation Act who are not required to be covered are…
    • Federal employees, railroad employees, most volunteers, and independent contractors.
    • Household domestic servants and some employees of agricultural operations (unless the employer elects to provide Workers' Compensation coverage for them).
    • Executive officers of Nebraska nonprofit corporations who receive annual compensation of $1,000.00 or less from the corporation.
  • Workers' Comp coverage can be purchased from a commercial insurance provider. Businesses that qualify may also choose to self-insure.
