Who can I exclude from my workers' compensation policy?

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.
