Taxi/Limo/Cabulance, Reforestation, Mechanized Logging, Drywall, & Trucking

Businesses in these industries have additional reports to file along with their quarterly reports.

Taxi/Limo/Cabulance Reporting Requirements

Effective July 23, 2015, mandatory workers compensation insurance coverage from the Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) is cancelled for drivers of for-hire, taxi, or limousines who own a vehicle or lease one from others. This change is based on a new law passed by the legislature Engrossed Substitute House Bill 5550 (123 KB PDF). These drivers may elect coverage beginning July 24, 2015. If you pay someone to drive your vehicle, you must buy worker's comp insurance for them.

Reforestation Reporting Requirements

A contractor in the reforestation industry must file reports for each contract in addition to their normal quarterly report. Once the contract is signed, the landowner must also file reports.

Mechanized Logging Reporting Requirements

A logging business that meets certain conditions may request L&I authorization to use a mechanical logging classification that will help the firm save money on their industrial insurance premiums. This classification requires them to submit a special report with their quarterly report.

Drywall Reporting Requirements

Premiums in the Drywall Industry are based on the square footage of material purchased and installed instead of the hours worked like premiums in most industries.

Trucking Reporting Requirements

Trucking firms insuring their workers through Washington State industrial insurance must keep and preserve original time records.
