Every employer in Nebraska with one or more employees must carry a Workers' Compensation Insurance policy. This includes employees of private industry, state and local government, part-time employees, minors, and employees of charitable organizations.
NE Workers' Comp: Key Details
- In Nebraska, sole proprietors with no employees are not required to carry coverage, but may elect to purchase coverage for themselves.
- 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.
