Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 39239
Filed: 03/25/2015 03:49:51 PM
NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 35A-4-204 defines employment in very broad terms. The Department has authority under Subsections 35A-1-104(1) and (4) and 35A-4-502(1)(b) to adopt rules and establish eligibility standards. The rule is needed to specify, for instance, what standards are use for determining independent contractor status. This rule draws from case law, Utah statutory law and federal regulations to establish standards that the Department follows in making those determinations.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments have been received in the last five years.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The rule is necessary to explain to employers and claimants when to pay contributions and who is eligible for unemployment benefits. It also provides rules for determining when an individual is an independent contractor and when the employer can seek safe haven. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
