Deferred payment arrangement
28.1 (1) Notwithstanding section 28, an employer who
(a) meets the conditions set by the commission;
(b) enters into an arrangement to pay his or her assessment for the current year in equal instalments between April 1 and December 31; and
(c) makes the payments in the manner and at the time required by the arrangement referred to in paragraph (b)
is not liable to the penalty required by that section.
(2) Where, during the year, the assessment due and payable by an employer for the current year changes, the amount payable under the arrangement entered into by the employer with the commission under subsection (1) shall be adjusted as required and the employer shall pay the balance of the assessment for the year, as adjusted, in equal instalments beginning on the next scheduled payment date immediately following the assessment adjustment and ending on the final scheduled payment date.
(3) Where an employer, who has entered into an arrangement with the commission under subsection (1), defaults in making a payment, in the amount or manner or at the time required under his or her arrangement with the commission, section 28 applies to the full outstanding balance.
