Medical Waiver

What recourse do I have as an employer if an employee chooses not to enroll in health insurance but refuses to return the signed waiver?

Is the employee actually refusing to sign the waiver or simply not willing or able to go to your office/location to sign the document?

If he’s blatantly refusing to sign it, have you asked why? Maybe it’s something simple as he doesn’t understand the options being provided to him. An open dialogue with non-HR/Benefits jargon may help.

Now, if he’s not willing or able to physically go to the location where he needs to sign the waiver, that’s a different story. Can you send a copy of the form to his location (fax/mail) to be signed and returned? Can you give the form to his supervisor?

You may consider not allowing the employee to work until the appropriate documents are submitted, whether enrollment forms or the waiver. This usually sends a clear message that the documents are important and must be completed.
