34:15-120.24. Detection and prevention of employer insolvencies .
To aid in the detection and prevention of employer insolvencies:
a. Upon determination by majority vote of the membership of the board that any member employer may be insolvent or in a financial condition hazardous to the employees thereof or to the public, it shall be the duty of the board of directors to notify the department of any information indicating that condition.
b. The board of directors may, upon majority vote of the membership of the board, request that the department determine the condition of any member employer which the board in good faith believes may no longer be qualified to be a member of the association. Within 30 days of the receipt of that request or, for good cause shown, within a reasonable time thereafter, the department shall make such determination and shall forthwith advise the board of its findings. Each request for a determination shall be kept on file by the department, but the request shall not be open to public inspection prior to the release of the determination to the public.
c. It shall also be the duty of the department to report to the board of directors when it has reasonable cause to believe that a member employer may be in such a financial condition as to be no longer qualified to be a member of the association.
d. The board of directors may, upon majority vote of the membership of the board, make reports and recommendations to the department upon any matter which is germane to the solvency, liquidation, rehabilitation, or conservation of any member employer. Such reports and recommendations shall not be considered public documents.
e. The board of directors may, upon majority vote of the membership of the board, make recommendations to the department for the detection and prevention of employer insolvencies.
f. The board of directors shall, at the conclusion of any member's insolvency in which the association was obligated to pay covered claims, prepare a report on the history and cause of that insolvency, based on the information available to the association, and shall submit that report to the department.
