Waiver of Workers Compensation Benefits

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.
