Policy AS-18 - Optional Coverage

Effective Dates

January 2, 1993 to August 29, 1995



General Information

The Workers' Compensation Act extends, in the event of a work-related injury, compensation benefits to "workers". Not everyone is considered to be a worker--for example employers, sole proprietors, volunteers, outworkers, and people acting in religious functions, such as clerics.

However, these individuals may purchase optional coverage from the board. Individuals who have purchased optional coverage are deemed to be "workers" and will receive compensation in the event of a work-related disability.
