Workers' Compensation Out-of-state Workers Temporarily In Colorado


The bill establishes an exemption from the 'Workers' Compensation Act of Colorado' for an out-of-state employer whose employees are working in Colorado on a temporary basis as long as: The out-of-state employer furnishes coverage under the workers' compensation laws of the state in which the employee is regularly employed, which coverage applies to the employee while working temporarily in Colorado; and The out-of-state employer's home state is contiguous to Colorado, recognizes the exemption, and provides a reciprocal exemption for Colorado employees temporarily working in that state. The home state's workers' compensation laws are the sole remedy for an out-of-state worker who is injured while working temporarily in Colorado. The division of workers' compensation in the department of labor and employment is authorized to enter into an agreement with a contiguous state to carry out the extraterritorial application of the workers' compensation or similar law of the other state. (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.) , Read More
