This assessment is used to fund workers’ compensation related programs and workplace safety and health programs that serve Oregon employers and workers. In addition, the rule adopts the rate for an additional assessment percentage amount that is collected from all self-insured employers as well as all self-insured employer groups to fund the Self-Insured Employers Adjustment Reserve and the Self-Insured Employer Group Adjustment Reserve. These reserves are established to assure benefits are available in the event of a financial failure of a self-insured employer or self-insured employer group. These rules establish the assessment rate for calendar year 2013.
