Workers’ Compensation Insurance

California law mandates that every employer shall establish, implement, and maintain an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program. Any PTA that pays wages directly to an individual and reports said employment on the Workers’ Compensation Annual Payroll Report must comply with this mandate.

Those unit, council, and district PTAs maintaining an office or employees performing at a regular place of business must post an Employee Acknowledgment Form to meet this requirement. The material must be kept current and filed as a part of the permanent record of the association. Each employee must read and sign the Employee Acknowledgment Form in duplicate. The original must be kept as a permanent record, and the copy must be sent to the California State PTA office.

For questions about Workers’ Compensation coverage for employees, contact the PTA insurance broker for further details and the location of the nearest field office.

It is critical that, before planning any PTA activities, the Insurance and Loss Prevention Guide be consulted.
