Workers' Compensation Exemption Registry

The Workers’ Compensation Exemption Registry is for the purpose of establishing construction service providers who are exempt from workers’ compensation coverage and in no way reflects licensing or certification of any construction services provider.

Have all your information ready before starting the application.

Since you cannot save and come back later, have the following information ready:

  • Documentation to verify the business’s FEIN
  • The most up to date contractors and business license information

More information can be found on the FAQ page.

Due to a high volume of applications and duplicate applications received, it may take up to 10 business days to process the application.

Thank you for your patience during this transition.
