The issuer of the policy, the worker's compensation insurance carrier, must inform the municipality within three working days of any change in or termination of coverage.
G. 
If the Borough receives notice that the contractor or resident has had coverage terminated, has lost state-approved self-insurance status or has employed persons without providing coverage, the Borough must and will, under the Workers' Compensation Act, issue a stop-work order. The stop-work order may not be lifted until the contractor and/or subcontractor obtains proper coverage.
