SECTION 28-43-8.3


§ 28-43-8.3 Rate where no experience.

Notwithstanding any inconsistent provisions of chapters 42 – 44 of this title, each employer who has not been subject to this chapter for a sufficient period of time to be eligible for any experience rate under this chapter shall pay contributions at a rate not exceeding four and two tenths percent (4.2%) that is the higher of one percent (1%) or the state's five (5) year benefit cost rate for employers not eligible for any experience rate under this chapter. For the purposes of this section, the state's five (5) year benefit cost rate for employers not eligible for any experience rate under this chapter shall be computed annually and shall be derived by dividing the total dollar amount of benefits charged to employers not eligible for any experience rate under chapters 42 – 44 of this title during the five (5) consecutive experience years immediately preceding the computation year by the total dollar amount of wages paid by employers not eligible for any experience rate under this chapter and subject to contributions under chapters 42 – 44 of this title during the same period.
