|Note out-of-state workers compensation coverage|
The University of North Dakota is required to procure workers compensation for employees working outside of the state of North Dakota for more than 30 consecutive days. This coverage MUST be in place at the time the employee begins his or her duties. The Risk Management Workers Compensation Program coordinates the purchase of this required coverage for all state agencies through its broker.
If an employee returns to work in North Dakota within the 30 days and works at his job for one day and then returns to his out-of-state employment and does this repeatedly through his employment, the employee would be covered under North Dakota Workforce Safety and would not need out of state coverage. Coming home for a weekend and not putting in a day's work, does not count. That employee would need out-of-state coverage.
This out-of-state workers compensation coverage need is not exclusive to full-time employees. Part-time employees, adjunct faculty, etc. must also be considered.
To obtain out-of-state coverage for a UND employee, please complete the out-of-state coverage form which is located on our web site: http://departments.und.edu/safety/forms/index.html. Send the completed information to Box 9031 or e-mail it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The information will be forwarded to Risk Management to obtain the coverage.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Safety Office at 777-3341.
