The bureau of workers' compensation will not accept an employer's report on application for payment of compensation and/or benefits, payroll reports, settlement sheets, and other instruments, which employers are required to submit to the bureau unless the document is signed by an officer in the organization of the employer, or a person in the employ of the employer, who is duly authorized to sign such instruments. The person signing such instruments for the employer shall indicate in what capacity the person is employed (title). No instruments purporting to authorize any service organization or any other person to sign such instruments for an employer shall be recognized as granting such authority.
