What happens if an employer fails to submit required reports?

(1) An employer that willfully fails to file a complete and timely report under WAC 192-540-030 through 192-540-050 is subject to penalties under RCW 50A.45.010.
(2) The department will send a warning letter for an employer's first incomplete or untimely report. For a second or subsequent occurrence within five years of the date of the last occurrence, the department will assess penalties under the following schedule:
(a) 2nd occurrence: $75.00
(b) 3rd occurrence: $150.00
(c) 4th and subsequent occurrences: $250.00
(3) After five years without a warning letter or occurrence, prior occurrences will not count and the employer shall receive a warning letter instead of a penalty on the next occurrence.
