Voluntary Compensation Endorsement

Definition

Enables an employer to extend the benefits provided by the workers compensation act to employees who may not be entitled to benefits under the terms of the act, such as executive officers, partners, sole proprietors, farm workers, domestic employees, or employees traveling overseas. If such an employee is injured in the course of employment, he or she may elect to accept the scale of benefits provided by the designated workers compensation law or pursue common law remedies.
