WORKER’S COMPENSATION AND RELATED LAWS — INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
EMPLOYMENT SECURITY LAW
72-1319. Eligible employer. (1) "Eligible employer" means a covered employer who has completed a qualifying period as defined in subsection (2) of this section, and who has filed all payroll reports required, has paid, on or before the cut-off date, all contributions and penalties due and has established a record of accumulated contributions in excess of benefits charged to his account. For the purposes of this section, delinquencies of a minor nature may be disregarded if the director is satisfied that such covered employer has acted in good faith and that forfeiture of a reduced taxable wage rate because of such minor delinquency would be inequitable.
(2) "Qualifying period" shall be the period of three (3) consecutive years ending on the computation date in which, during all of said years, the employer shall be chargeable for benefits under this state law, except, that a new employer shall have a qualifying period of one (1) year ending on the computation date in which, during all of said year, the employer shall be chargeable for benefits under this state law.
