Indicator 10: Promptness of Submitting Wage Reports
This report measures compliance with DWD 80.02(2)(c) Wis. Adm. relating to submission of the Wage Supplemental Report, WKC-13-A.
Insurers are required to submit the wage supplemental information required by form WKC-13-A if the wage is less than the maximum rate. The information is required at the same time as the first WKC-13 unless it is unavailable at that time in which case the insurer is required to estimate the date that it will be submitted.
Standard or Benchmark:
There is no legal standard set by statute or rule for compliance. The benchmark used for training, evaluation and enforcement purposes is that at least 80% of supplemental wage information or the notice of an estimated date is submitted timely.
Source of Indicator Data:
The source of the data is either the date recorded as the received date of the WKC-13-A information or the notice of the estimated date from Internet reports.
Promptness percentage is computed by dividing the number of reports and timely notices of estimated dates received within 30 days of the date of injury or last day of work, the same time frame within which the WKC-13 Supplemental Report is due. This establishes a ratio of timely responses. This indicator is first published in July 2003, reflecting performance in the 2nd quarter of 2003.
