Section 72-310 - MISREPRESENTATION NOT TO AFFECT EMPLOYEE’S RIGHTS.
72-310. MISREPRESENTATION NOT TO AFFECT EMPLOYEE’S RIGHTS. (1) No statement in an application for such a policy, contract or bond shall void the policy, contract or bond as between the surety and employer unless such statement shall be false and would materially have affected the acceptance of the risk if known by the surety. In no case shall the holding of the policy, contract or bond void between the surety and employer affect the surety’s obligation to the employer’s employees or their dependents to pay compensation and to discharge other obligations under this law. In such case, the surety shall have a right of action against the employer for any amounts for which the surety is liable under such policy, contract or bond.
(2) As between any such employee or his dependents and the surety no question as to breach of warranty or misrepresentation by the insured shall be raised by the surety in any proceeding or any appeal therefrom.
