Whenever a person, firm or corporation (hereinafter referred to in this section as
“the prime contractor”) contracts or subcontracts with an employer and such contract
or subcontract contemplates the performance of either construction work or the severance,
production or transportation (excluding railroads or water transporters) of minerals
or any combination of the foregoing, then the prime contractor shall, within ten days
next following the execution of such contract or subcontract, notify the commissioner
in writing by certified mail, return receipt requested, of such contract, which notice
shall include the employee's name, the location of the job site and the employer's
principal business location: Provided, That if it is ascertained by the prime contractor
from the commissioner that the commissioner has obtained the information required
to be included in such notice from another agency of this state, then the filing of
such notice by the prime contractor shall not be required. If the prime contractor is a firm, corporation or association, then any and all
of the officers of such firm, corporation or association shall be responsible to see
to the proper notification required by this section. If any prime contractor fails to give the notice required by this section when required
to do so, such prime contractor is guilty of a misdemeanor, and, upon conviction thereof,
shall be fined not less than five hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars.
