§ 28-40-3.4 Set-off for delinquent contributions.
If the director determines that any individual, or employing unit or its agent, has failed or refused to transmit contributions withheld from the wages of employees in accordance with chapters 39 41 of this title, the director shall notify the state controller of this delinquency. The state controller, upon certification of the amount of the delinquency by the director, shall set-off the amount of the delinquency against any payment due that person or entity and the director shall credit that amount against the contributions due. The director may not seek set-off until such time as a delinquency determination for the contributions has been directed to the person or entity. If a person or entity assessed a delinquency determination for contributions has requested a hearing on the assessment within the applicable statutory period, no request for set-off may be made while the matter is pending in the hearing or from any appeal from the hearing.
