Section 76.7 - Effective date of coverage
Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 38, September 21, 2022
(a) Upon the approval of the application of an employer for the inclusion of its employees in the plan, the president shall thereupon fix an effective date for the commencement of coverage of such employees. Such effective date shall be fixed with due regard to a reasonable time allowance needed for educational, promotional and enrollment purposes and other administrative requirements. The president may, in his discretion, fix a schedule of effective dates of coverage with respect to newly approved employers on a quarterly basis or at such other time intervals as he may deem appropriate.
(b) Notwithstanding such effective date for coverage as may be fixed by the president and except as provided in this subdivision, coverage shall not become effective with respect to the employees of an employer unless 40 percent of all persons eligible for coverage as employees of such employer shall enroll for such coverage and the employer complies with such conditions as the president may prescribe. The president, in consideration of the certification by the Director of Employee Relations or the Public Employment Relations Board, as the case may be, shall make the final administrative determination whether the employees set forth in an application are eligible for coverage. No coverage shall become effective until premiums therefor have been paid into the group accident and sickness insurance fund.
