  weeks following the thirtieth day of such employment, whichever  is  the
  later.
    2.  The  provisions of subdivision one of this section shall not apply
  to an employer of personal or domestic  employees  in  a  private  home,
  except  an  employer  shall become a covered employer from and after the
  expiration of four  weeks  following  the  employment  of  one  or  more
  personal or domestic employees who work for a minimum of forty hours per
  week  for such employer and are employed on each of at least thirty days
  in any calendar year.
    3. A covered employer, except  as  otherwise  provided  herein,  shall
  continue  to be a covered employer until the end of any calendar year in
  which he shall not have employed in employment one or more employees  on
  each  of  thirty  days,  and  shall  have  duly  filed with the chairman
  satisfactory evidence  thereof.  A  covered  employer  of  employees  in
  personal  or  domestic  service in a private home shall continue to be a

  of a covered employer, shall immediately become a covered employer.
    5. Whenever an employee of a covered employer, with the consent of the
  employer,  engages  or  permits another to do any work in employment for
  which the employee is employed, the employer shall  be  deemed  for  the
  purpose  of  this  article to be the employer also of such other person,
  regardless of whether the employee or the employer pays for his service.
