PA HB 440, Extending Workers Compensation Coverage, to Gov. Corbett for Signature

Pennsylvania House Bill 440 has gone to Governor Corbett for his signature.  The Bill authorizes insurers and the State Workers’ Insurance Fund (SWIF) to “provide, on a voluntary basis, to sole proprietors, partners of a partnership or members of a limited liability company, workers’ compensation insurance . . . .”  As these business organizations were previously ineligible for coverage, this Bill broadens possible coverage, although the coverage is not mandatory.
