Group Rating Settlement Deadline

In the September, 2014 Comp Connection we reported the deadline for filing a claim under the class action settlement in San Allen, Inc. v. Buehrer, Administrator, Bur. Of Work. Comp.  As a reminder, the settlement applies to state fund employers only.  If your company was a non-group rated state fund employer in one or more of the policy years from 2001-2008, it is considered an eligible “Class Member.”  State fund employers which were group rated during the above years also may be entitled to a reduction for benefits received as group rated employers.  To receive compensation, Class Members must submit a “claim form” to the Settlement Administrator by October 22, 2014.  If a state fund employer wishes to object to the settlement, it may do so by October 22, 2014.  Please click here to access the settlement administrator’s website.
