Corporate officers may be excluded by filing Corporate Officer Election Not to Accept Provisions of Workers' Compensation (Form I-6). Note: The election of a corporate officer to be excluded does not reduce the number of employees for the purposes of determining the requirements of coverage.
Sole proprietors and partners are excluded from a workers' compensation policy, but may elect to be covered by filing Sole Proprietor/Partner Election to Come Within the Provisions of the Tennessee Workers' Compensation Law (Form I-4). Note: Both the I-4 and the I-6 forms are effective 30 days after the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development receives the forms. The original fully-completed notarized form should be sent to the Division of Workers' Compensation.
