WASHINGTON: L&I offers payment plans to struggling businesses

COVID-19Workers’ Comp 

The Washington Department of Labor and Industries (L&I)’s Employer Assistance Program is designed to work with financially distressed businesses during hard times, and arrange for payment plans for workers’ compensation premiums. This may be helpful if your business is struggling due to issues related to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The program allows a business to ask for a 90-day same-as-cash payment plan with no interest or penalties. To find out if you qualify, contact your L&I account manager. For more information about the program and how to locate your account manager, visit L&I’s Employer Assistance Program web page. Your Vigilant workers’ compensation team is also available to help.
