Highlight

Under N.D.C.C. § 65-04-04(1), workforce insurance premium liability must be based on a proportion of the annual expenditure of money by the employer for the service of persons.

The information Workforce Safety and Insurance uses to calculate an employer’s liability must be indicative of the premiums the employer owes and sufficiently reliable to support the amount.

An ALJ’s finding that WSI used unreliable information to establish premium liability in this case is supported by the record and affirmed.
