Two types of entities may apply for a certificate to show they are exempt from the requirement to provide workers’ compensation and/or disability and Paid Family Leave benefits coverage:
- New York entities with no employees
- Out-of-state entities obtaining a contract or license where all the work is performed outside of New York State
Only these two types of entities may apply for a Certificate of Attestation of Exemption (CE-200). This certificate can only be used to attest to a government entity that an applicant requesting a permit, license, or contract is not required to carry workers’ compensation and/or disability and Paid Family Leave benefits coverage.
- Certificates are only valid for the specific license, permit or contract. Certificates for building permits are job-specific and a separate certificate will be required for each building permit.
- Certificates are assigned a unique certificate number that can be validated by the government official issuing the license, permit, or contract.
