- The Florida Legislature passed and the Governor signed into law CS/HB 941, which amended Sections 440.02(9) and 440.05, Florida Statutes. Effective July 1, 2013, the law changes to include Limited Liability Company (LLC) members as employees. LLC members will be included as employees on their Workers' Compensation insurance policy; however, they may elect to be exempt by filing a Notice of Election to Be Exempt with the Division of Workers' Compensation (Division). For more information you are invited to view our presentation related to Non-construction LLCs and Exemptions by accessing it here: Non-Construction-LLC-Exemptions [4.6M WMV]
