Salem, OR – The Workers’ Compensation Division recently announced that it will resume auditing self-insured employers’ premium assessment filings in the fall of 2017 for the time period July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017.
All self-insured employers (including self-insured employer groups) will be subject to the audit.
This audit was last performed in 2010.

The requirements and guidelines for filing premium assessments are prescribed by OAR 436-085 and the applicable bulletin. Additional audit details will be communicated before conducting the audit.

In addition, self-insured employers may be assessed civil penalties for reasons including, but not limited to, the submission of inaccurate or inappropriate assessment filings.
