Out-of-state employeesPremium waiver.

*** CHANGE IN 2019 *** (SEE 1399-S.SL) ***
(1) An employer may file an application with the department for a conditional waiver for the payment of family and medical leave premiums, assessed under RCW 50A.04.115, for any employee who is:
(a) Physically based outside of the state;
(b) Employed in the state on a limited or temporary work schedule; and
(c) Not expected to be employed in the state for eight hundred twenty hours or more in a qualifying period.
(2) The department must approve an application that has been signed by both the employee and employer verifying their belief that the conditions in this subsection will be met during the qualifying period.
(3) If the employee exceeds the eight hundred twenty hours or more in a qualifying period, the conditional waiver expires and the employer and employee will be responsible for their shares of all premiums that would have been paid during the qualifying period in which the employee exceeded the eight hundred twenty hours had the waiver not been granted. Upon payment of the missed premiums, the employee will be credited for the hours worked and will be eligible for benefits under this chapter as if the premiums were originally paid.
