Section 25-5-115

False written representation to employer as to previous compensation for occupational disease.

If an employee, at the time of or in the course of entering into the employment of the employer by whom the compensation would otherwise be paid, wilfully and falsely represented himself in writing to such employer as not having previously been compensated in damages, or under this article, because of occupational disease, as defined in this article, such employee, his personal representative, parents, surviving spouse, dependents, and next of kin shall be barred from compensation or other benefits provided by this article or from recovery at common law by statute, contract, or otherwise on account of occupational disease as defined in this article, resulting from exposure to the hazards of such disease subsequent to such representation and while in the employ of such employer.
