Waiver of WC Rights Invalid

Agreement by an employee to waive his rights under the WC Act is invalid.;

Indiana Code 22-3-2-15 states that "...no agreement by an employee or his dependents to waive his rights under IC 22-3-2 through IC 22-3-6 shall be valid..."

Therefore, any contract between an employer and employee that would attempt to limit the requirement that all employees be covered by workers compensation insurance would be void.

The Indiana Code is available on the State of Indiana website at this address: http://www.state.in.us/legislative/ic/code/.
