An employer subject to the Wisconsin Worker's Compensation Act may not withhold or collect any money from employees or any other person, including independent contractors and sub-contractors, to pay for worker's compensation insurance. To do so is illegal. Also, no agreement by an employee waiving rights to compensation is valid.
