I can see exactly what happened.

 

You delegated the administration, review, and setting up for payment a variety of incoming bills from a variety of sources including your WC insurance premium bills.

 

Said employee dropped the ball on the WC premium statements and the policy got cancelled for non-payment.

 

Now you want to know what to do.

 

Well, here's your answer.

 

You call your insurance agent and ask how much of a check you have to write to get your policy reinstated, then write the check and get it done.

 

It's possible that the insurance company will go back to the lapse date if you've had no losses or write you a new policy if you have had losses. I hope to heck you don't have any employees that got hurt on the job during the lapse period because then you'd be SOL.

 

Anyway, once you get insured again, from now on you get all your insurance mail sent to you personal and confidential and handle the payments yourself. Never delegate anything that important to anybody else.

 

Meantime, you fire that employee right now. You're a fool if you haven't done that already. Screwing up your insurance is valid cause for termination no matter what's wrong with her.

I'm glad adjuster could read through those lines (it wouldn't make sense for an "employee" to be paying workers' comp premiums).  :)

It is worth noting that even if this employee had payment authority (as in, she could make the payments), someone else should have oversight as to her work and ensuring X gets done.  Who is that person's manager and who reviewed accounts?  May be mirror time.
