COVID-19: We are here to help 

Quality Service Remains Our Top Priority
We understand during this unprecedented time that businesses and people are feeling the adverse effects of COVID-19. We want you to know that Republic Indemnity employees are working from home and are available to help you with matters related to your workers’ compensation policy with us. 

Quality service remains our top priority, and we know that when you contact our representatives for assistance with claims, billing or underwriting issues, or for help with access to our systems, that you expect us to be there, and we are. All Republic employees who regularly provide services to you are still only a phone call or an email away.

The Department of Consumer and Business Services for the state of Oregon has issued a COVID-19 Industry Notice and informational flyer highlighting important workers' compensation facts for workers and employers. 

Payroll Adjustments
If your business is temporarily closed or your staff are working reduced hours, it’s very likely that your employee payroll is down. To ensure your premium properly reflects your actual payroll, we encourage you to update your payroll information by contacting your agent. Please refer to the letter we sent to our policyholders. Also see California Emergency Regulations.

You may have received a reprinted copy of your final audit along with a notice regarding the reporting changes related to COVID-19 in the mail.

The intent of this correspondence is to provide you an opportunity to revise your final payroll report in the event that your business was impacted by COVID-19. Please review the notice as it highlights the changes along with the backdated effective dates related to the shelter in place order.

Please make any necessary corrections and return to us at your earliest convenience. If you have any additional questions please contact the Audit Department at (800) 662-1485 option 3.

Payment Flexibility
Many businesses have been negatively affected due to the public health response to COVID-19. Please contact our premium accounting department if you need additional flexibility with your current payment plan.   

Compliance with State Regulations
Various state legislatures and insurance regulators are working to address the impacts of COVID-19 on businesses across the country. As new and/or temporary state insurance regulations are enacted in response to the COVID-19 crisis, Republic will respond timely and appropriately to assure compliance is maintained.
