WAC 192-510-030

How will the department determine the wages earned and hours worked for self-employed persons electing coverage?

(1) The department will use the self-employed person's reported income and divide it by the state's minimum wage to presume the number of hours worked.
Example: For this example, the state's minimum wage is $12.00 per hour. The self-employed person electing coverage reports $10,000 of income in a quarter. The department will divide $10,000 by $12.00 and presume the self-employed person worked 833 hours in that quarter.
(2) The self-employed person may overcome the presumption of hours by providing sufficient documentation to the department including, but not limited to, personal logs or contracts.
(3) The department may require copies of tax returns, bank records, or any other documentation deemed necessary by the department to verify or determine the self-employed person's hours and wages.
