Certificate of Attestation of Exemption (CE-200)This certificate attests that a business is not required to carry New York workers' compensation and/or New York disability and paid family leave benefits insurance.

The most common situations are: the business is owned by one individual with no employees and is not a corporation; the business is a partnership under New York laws, and there are no employees; or the business is a one or two person owned corporation, with those individuals owning all of the stock and holding all offices of the corporation, and there are NO employees.
