72-219. Injuries in transitory employment in Idaho. (1) If an employee is entitled to the benefits of this law by reason of an injury sustained or occupational disease contracted in this state in employment by an employer who is domiciled in another state and who has not secured the payment of compensation as required by this law, the employer or his surety may file with the commission a certificate, issued by the board, commission, officer or agency of such other state having jurisdiction over workmen’s compensation claims, certifying that such employer has secured the payment of compensation under the workmen’s compensation law of such other state and that with respect to said injury or disease such employee is entitled to the benefits provided under such law; and shall also file with the commission an irrevocable power of attorney, in form approved by the commission, designating a person or corporation domiciled in this state as his or its attorney-in-fact for acceptance of process in any proceeding brought by such employee or his dependents to enforce his or their rights under this law;
(2) If such employer is a qualified self-insurer under the workmen’s compensation law of such other state, such employer shall, upon submission of evidence satisfactory to the commission of his ability to meet his liability to such employee under this law, be deemed to be a qualified self-insurer under this law;
(3) If such employer’s liability under the workmen’s compensation law of such other state is insured, such employer’s surety, as to such employee or his dependents only, shall be deemed to be an insurer authorized to write insurance under and be subject to this law, provided, however, that unless the contract with said employer requires it to pay an amount equivalent to the compensation benefits provided by this law, its liability for income benefits or for medical and related benefits shall not exceed the amounts of such benefits for which such insurer would have been liable under the workmen’s compensation law of such other state;
(4) If the total amount for which such employer’s insurer is liable under the subdivisions (2) and (3) is less than the total of the compensation benefits to which such employee is entitled under this law, the commission, if it deems necessary, may require the employer to file security, satisfactory to the commission, to secure the payment of benefits due such employee or his dependents under this law; and
(5) Upon compliance with the preceding requirements of this section such employer, as to such employee and his dependents only, shall be deemed to have secured the payment of compensation under this law.
