Worker Hour Reporting Period Ends the Last Day of Each Month for Workers Compensation:
Contributions are due and payable to Puget Sound ESD monthly, within ten (ten) working days of your normal pay date.
During a time when staffing and payroll management are dynamically changing, we offer the following guidance when reporting numbers.
- All wages should be reported:
- If the employee receives wages and is working (from home or on site) the PAYROLL and HOURS must be reported for the calculation of Premium.
- If the employee receives wages, but is not working, NO HOURS are reported, but the Payroll for these employees is reported.
- Staff/Substitutes who are not being paid are not included.
Each school district is unique and facing different challenges. Contact Brad Jones, Claims Attorney for the Trust and the Pool at email@example.com or Leigh Ann Stalker, Sr. Coordinator Client Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org with specific questions.
