§ 112.301. Labor Agent’s Notification of Coverage

(a) A labor agent shall notify each person with whom the labor agent contracts to provide the services of migrant and seasonal workers whether or not the labor agent has workers’ compensation insurance coverage.

(b) The notification shall be in writing and shall be given at the time the contract for the services of the migrant or seasonal workers is made. The notification shall be signed and dated by both parties and each party shall retain a copy of the notice.

(c) If the labor agent does have workers’ compensation insurance coverage, the labor agent shall present evidence of the workers’ compensation insurance coverage to each person with whom the agent contracts to provide the services of migrant and seasonal workers. The evidence of coverage shall be in writing and shall be presented at the time the notification of coverage is made. Each party shall retain a copy of the evidence of coverage with the copy of the notice. A certificate of insurance shall be considered adequate evidence of coverage.

(d) The notice and evidence of coverage, if applicable, shall be given each time a labor agent makes a contract with a person to provide migrant or seasonal workers. Any notice and evidence of coverage provided for a prior contract between the parties shall be considered insufficient to meet the requirements of this section.

(e) If coverage is terminated during the period of the contract for employment, the labor agent shall notify:

(1) the person with whom the agent contracted to provide the services of migrant and seasonal workers; and

(2) the migrant and seasonal workers affected that the workers’ compensation insurance coverage has been terminated.
