Time to file your quarterly report!

This is a reminder to all employers to file your quarterly report and pay your premiums, if you haven't already, which are due for the third quarter (July 1, 2020 - Sept. 30, 2020) no later than Nov. 2, 2020.

All employers must file a report — even if you don't have any hours to report or premiums due. In this case, you may write “0” for worker hours/units and payroll.

If you don't file your report by the deadline, a late filing penalty, and possible interest charges, will be assessed.

If you are unable to pay your quarterly premiums during the COVID-19 pandemic, still file your report before the Nov. 2 deadline. 

L&I has an Employer Assistance Program to assist you with a payment plan during the COVID-19 pandemic.

L&I services for filing your quarterly report are available online through QuickFile and the Claim & Account Center.  Go to and file your quarterly report now.

Gov. Jay Inslee has directed all cabinet-level agencies in Washington state to take furlough days as a result of the state budget shortfall related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many L&I employees will go on furlough and will not be able to answer phone calls or emails. Account Managers will be working and available, but some technical assistance staff will not be available.

L&I’s Tumwater and field office locations will be closed for a furlough day on Friday, Oct. 30.

L&I remains committed to keeping Washington safe and working, and our services that are vital to public health and safety – DOSH, Electrical Inspections, workers’ compensation benefits – will remain operational during furlough days.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, L&I regional offices are closed to public visits until further notice. Office staff can still help you by phone from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays (except state holidays and mandatory furlough days). Call the phone number for your closest regional office, or the Office of Information and Assistance at 360-902-5800.
