The only posting notice required by the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Act is for employers of certain agricultural operations. An agricultural operation no longer subject to the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Act (or an agricultural operation that has previously voluntarily chosen to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for its employees) may elect to return to exempt status by posting a written or printed notice. Such notice is not provided by the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court. The notice must state that the employer will no longer carry workers' compensation insurance for the employees and the date coverage will end. This notice must be posted continuously in a conspicuous place at all employment locations of the employees for at least 90 days. After the 90 day posting period has passed, the employer may then cancel the workers' compensation policy. Failure to provide this notice voids an employer's attempt to return to exempt status.
In addition to the notice requirements for terminating coverage, every employer who is exempt under the Act and does not voluntarily elect to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage must give all employees the following written notice at the time of hiring:
In this employment you will not be covered by the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Act and you will not be compensated under the act if you are injured on the job or suffer an occupational disease. You should plan accordingly. Failure to provide this notice subjects an employer to liability and inclusion in the Act for all unrelated employees.
