PRIME Highlights

  • If employers meet the practice incentive requirements, they can qualify for a 5% practice refund.
  • If employers manage their claim costs today, they can help to minimize their assessment costs through the experience incentive component of PRIME.
  • Depending on how eligible employers’ claim costs compare to their experience incentive range, one of the following will occur:
    • an experience refund may be applied
    • an experience charge may be applied
    • neither an experience refund nor charge may be applied, i.e., employers may pay the base rate only
  • Employers must submit their annual employer statements (as all three statements, if applicable, are required) to WorkplaceNL by February 28 each year. Failure to complete and submit these forms by February 28 will result in forfeiture of their PRIME refund(s). However, employers will still be subject to experience charges, if applicable.
  • 2018 PRIME results will be applied to employers' assessment invoices in early 2019 when their 2018 Annual Employer Statements are processed.
  • Employers should always review all PRIME Status Reports they receive for accuracy and report any discrepancies to WorkplaceNL immediately. Click here to see a sample PRIME Status Report.
  • If employers are receiving their cost reports in the mail but would like to view them on the web, they can register for WorkplaceNL online services called connect.
  • If employers are not receiving any cost reports but they have claim costs, they should click here to access the Claim Cost Contact Authorization Form. Once the form is completed, forward it to the WorkplaceNL to receive the reports.
