Michigan Workers Compensation Agency releases updated Application for Mediation or Hearing – Form C.
The WCA has published an updated Application for Mediation or Hearing — Form C. It now includes a “check box” for adding a non-employer entity to a case. This change was made based upon user feedback and to streamline operations/procedures. The updated form can be used immediately.
Adding a non-employer entity is appropriate when another party could have some potential liability. Situations where a non-employer entity could have liability include dual employment, statutory employment, labor brokers, and loaned employees.
Dual employment is when an individual has two jobs. Statutory employment occurs when a general contractor is held liable for a subcontractor who did not maintain required workers’ compensation insurance. Labor brokers provide workers to other entities on a leased basis. Loaned employees might be temporarily assigned to a different entity for a project.
Situations involving multiple entities can be complicated. It is best to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to ensure the appropriate parties are in the case.
