Complying With Other States Workers' Compensation Requirements

It is the duty of every North Dakota employer whose business operations extend into other jurisdictions to comply with the workers’ compensation requirements of that jurisdiction. North Dakota employers who do not ensure their compliance with the other states workers' compensation requirements run the risk of being uninsured in another state.

Typically, an employer who does not ensure compliance with other states workers’ compensation requirements is unaware that they would be considered uninsured in another state until an employee files a claim for benefits in another state. After an employee files the claim, an inquiry may be made as to the status of the employer’s workers' compensation coverage in that other state. If a North Dakota employer is deemed uninsured in that other state, the financial repercussions in premium and penalties are potentially serious.
