§ 28-36-2. Certificate of compliance by employer.

(a) Whenever an employer has complied with the requirements of § 28-36-1(a)(2) or (a)(3), and with any other reasonable requirements that the director shall make, the director shall issue to the employer a certificate, which shall remain in force for a period fixed by the director, but no longer than one year, and the director may, upon at least sixty (60) days’ notice and a hearing to the employer, revoke the certificate upon satisfactory evidence for the revocation having been presented. Every employer who or that has been certified pursuant to the requirements of § 28-36-1 and this section, must apply for renewal of its certificate annually, within sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of its current certificate. To qualify for renewal of its certificate, the employer must demonstrate continued compliance with § 28-36-1(a)(2) or (a)(3) and any other reasonable requirements the director may impose at the time of renewal. Upon proof of compliance the director shall issue to the employer a new certificate.

(b) Failure to comply with the requirements pertaining to the renewal process or failure to provide any required data on a renewal application prior to renewal date shall automatically act as nonrenewal. Renewal is not automatic, but must be applied for and processed by the department of labor and training as stipulated in rules and regulations in force. Only when revocation of a certificate is to be made prior to the expiration date, shall a hearing be granted on a revocation process.
