AS 23.30.075. Employer's Liability to Pay.
- (a) An employer under this chapter, unless exempted, shall either insure and keep insured for the employer's liability
under this chapter in an insurance company or association duly authorized to transact the business of workers'
compensation insurance in this state, or shall furnish the division satisfactory proof of the employer's financial ability
to pay directly the compensation provided for. If an employer elects to pay directly, the board may, in its
discretion, require the deposit of an acceptable security, indemnity, or bond to secure the payment of compensation
liabilities as they are incurred.
- (b) If an employer fails to insure and keep insured employees subject to this chapter or fails to obtain a certificate of
self-insurance from the division, upon conviction, the court shall impose a fine of $10,000 and may impose a sentence of
imprisonment for not more than one year. If an employer is a corporation, all persons who, at the time of the injury or
death, had authority to insure the corporation or apply for a certificate of self-insurance, and the person actively in
charge of the business of the corporation shall be subject to the penalties prescribed in this subsection and shall be
personally, jointly, and severally liable together with the corporation for the payment of all compensation or other
benefits for which the corporation is liable under this chapter if the corporation at that time is not insured or
qualified as a self-insurer.
