Completing Drywall Reports

Submit the following two reports along with the Employer's Quarterly Report for Industrial Insurance.

Supplemental Quarterly Report for the Drywall Industry

  1. Gather the following information:
    • Workers' names.
    • Social Security Numbers.
    • Gross wages.
    • Basis for pay (piece work, hourly, etc.).
    • Rate per unit/hour.
    • Work performed (this is required for firms reporting in the discounted classifications).
  2. Fill in the report, listing all employees who worked for your firm for the period being reported.

Drywall Industry Owner/Subcontractor Report

You must do two things:

  • Keep daily time records for the owner and employees to substantiate the percent of owner deduction.
  • Determine total square footage for each job. To do this you must:
    • Compute owner deduction.
    • Determine subcontractor square footage worked installing and taping.

This includes drywall board purchased and also provided by others such as a general contractor.

Compute owner deduction

Follow these four steps to determine owner and worker exposure for drywall activities:

  1. Add the owner's hours to the workers' hours to get the total hours.
  2. Divide the owner's hours by the total hours to get the percent of owner deduction.
  3. Multiply the percentage from step two by the total job square footage to get the owner square footage.
  4. Subtract the owner square footage from the total job square footage to get the reportable square footage you need for the quarterly report form.

Recordkeeping

Keep the following information on file:

  • Subcontractors' UBI.
  • L&I account number.
  • Contractors' Registration number.

Maintain all subcontractor invoices/contracts to substantiate the amount of deductible square footage.

For each project/job, complete the Drywall Industry Owner/Subcontractor Report (if there was owner or subcontractor activity during the reporting period). Fill in the report with total hours and square footage worked by owners and workers in the installation and taping classifications.

Fill the identification information and square footage worked by each subcontractor in the installation and taping classification.

Submit the Drywall Industry Owner/Subcontractor Report with the Employer's Quarterly Report for Industrial Insurance.

Employer's Quarterly Report for Industrial Insurance

The total square footage used to complete the Drywall Industry Owner/Subcontractor Report is used to complete the Employer's Quarterly Report for Industrial Insurance form.

In addition, you need to organize your records to capture hours worked by employees in classifications in which you report by hours worked.

Fill in the total square footage worked by your firm less the owner deduction in the drywall installation classification and the taping classification. Then multiply these totals by your rate to determine premiums for these activities.

For activities reported on an hourly basis (for example stocking or metal stud installation), fill in the total hours worked by employees in these activities and then multiply the total hours by your rate to determine premiums.

What is Fraud? Help lower your premium cost; make others pay their fair share and get workers back to work by reporting law breakers.

Fraud costs the Washington State workers' compensation system millions of dollars each year. Employers, employees, L&I and Washington consumers pay the cost of fraud in lost jobs and profit, lower wages and benefits, and higher costs for services and premiums.
