All WV employers are statutorily required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
The Employer Coverage Unit (ECU) is responsible for employer compliance with the state’s workers’ compensation law. Compliance related activities include reviewing employer applications for exemption from workers’ compensation insurance and issuing an opinion on the exemption as well as maintaining the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) Proof of Coverage system (POC). The ECU uses this system to verify coverage for other state agencies, governmental bodies and the general public. Other duties include assessing fines to noncompliant employers, receiving and determining coverage status for Uninsured Employer Fund (UEF) claims and reconciliation of Workers’ Compensation Old Fund accounts, new UEF fine accounts and claim accounts.
