Exemption from Workers’ Compensation
Before the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) can issue a new license or reinstate, reactivate, or renew an existing license, the applicant
or licensee must have on file a Certificate of Workers’ Compensation Insurance or a Certificate of Self-Insurance issued by the Director of
Industrial Relations, or must obtain an exemption by completing and submitting these forms.
To be exempt from workers’ compensation, an applicant or licensee must submit this form to CSLB, certifying under penalty of perjury that
he or she does not employ anyone in a manner that is subject to the workers’ compensation laws of California. (See Business and Professions
Code Section 7125.)
DO NOT SUBMIT THIS FORM IF:
You have an inactive license.
The license qualifier is a Responsible Managing Employee (RME).
You have employees.
For exemption from workers’ compensation, you must complete the requested information, check only
one of the boxes, and sign the form.

SECTION 3 – REQUIRED SIGNATURE
FALSIFICATION OF ANY DOCUMENT IS GROUNDS FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION.
I certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the information provided on this exemption statement is true and
accurate. I understand that, upon employing anyone in a manner that is subject to the workers’ compensation laws of the State of California, the
claim of exemption executed under this form will no longer be valid. I also understand that, as soon as I employ anyone subject to the California’s
workers’ compensation laws, I must obtain a Certificate of Workers’ Compensation Insurance, submit that certificate to CSLB within 90 days of its
effective date, and continuously maintain the coverage provided by the certificate in accordance with the law. I further understand that failure to
comply with this requirement is grounds for disciplinary action. (The definition of “perjury” is telling a lie while under oath.)
