Appeal Coverage & Rates

Employers' right to protest and appeal an L&I decision about their workers' compensation premiums

A protest is also known as a "request for reconsideration."

If L&I has sent you one of the following:

  • A Notice and Order of Assessment (NOA) within the last 30 days,
  • A Revocation of Coverage, Classification Change or Rate Notice within the last 60 days,

then you have the right to protest or appeal L&I's decison.

  1. You may file a protest or "request for reconsideration" with L&I.
    If you file a protest, then L&I will review its decision and issue a new order. If you still disagree...
  2. You may appeal to the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals (BIIA).
