34:8-73 Actions upon entry, dissolution of leasing agreement.


7. a. Upon entering into the employee leasing agreement:

(1)If the employee leasing company acquires the client company's total workforce, the employee leasing company shall report wages and pay contributions pursuant to the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq., based on the benefit experience assigned to the employee leasing company under R.S.43:21-7. The benefit experience of the client company shall not be transferred to the leasing company and shall not be used in the calculation of the employee leasing company's future contribution rates.

(2)If the employee leasing company acquires less than all of the client company's total workforce, the employee leasing company shall report wages and pay contributions pursuant to the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq. for that portion of the workforce acquired based on the benefit experience assigned to the employee leasing company under R.S.43:21-7. The benefit experience associated with that portion of the client company's workforce acquired by the employee leasing company shall not be transferred to the employee leasing company and shall not be used in the calculation of the employee leasing company's future contribution rates. The client company shall continue to report wages and pay contributions for the workforce not acquired by the employee leasing company using the client company's contribution rate.

b.Upon dissolution of the employee leasing agreement:

(1)If, under the dissolved employee leasing agreement, the client company had leased its total workforce, and if, at the time of dissolution, the client company had leased those employees for at least two full calendar years, the client company shall be assigned the rate of a new employer under R.S.43:21-7 until it is eligible for a rate based on benefit experience pursuant to that section or enters into another employee leasing agreement.

(2)If, under the dissolved employee leasing agreement, the client company had leased its total workforce, and if, at the time of the dissolution, the client company had leased those employees for less than two full calendar years, the employee leasing company at the time of dissolution shall provide the Department of Labor with the data necessary to calculate the benefit experience of the client company for the duration of the employee leasing agreement. That benefit experience shall then be added to the client company's benefit experience which was established prior to entering the employee leasing agreement. Both the client company and the employee leasing company shall continue to use the rate of the employee leasing company for the period from the date of the dissolution of the employee leasing agreement until the following July 1.

(3)If, under the dissolved employee leasing agreement, the client company had leased less than its total workforce from the employee leasing company, and if, at the time of dissolution, the client company had leased those covered employees for at least two full calendar years, the benefit experience associated with that portion of the client company's workforce which had been leased from the employee leasing company shall not be transferred to the client company and shall not be used in the calculation of the client company's future contribution rates.

(4)If, under the dissolved employee leasing agreement, the client company had leased less than its total workforce from the employee leasing company, and if, at the time of dissolution, the client company had leased those covered employees for less than two full calendar years, the leasing company shall provide the department with the data necessary to calculate the benefit experience associated with that portion of the client's workforce which had been leased from the employee leasing company. The department shall combine that benefit experience with the client company's existing benefit experience. Both the client company and the employee leasing company shall continue to use their own rates for the period from the date of the dissolution until the following July 1.

(5)If, immediately upon dissolution of the employee leasing agreement, the client company enters into a subsequent employee leasing agreement regarding those covered employees with another employee leasing company, the payroll relative to the client company shall be reported and paid at the rate assigned the second employee leasing company.
