Section 4133.08 | Financial statements.
(A) An alternate employer organization shall maintain positive working capital at initial or annual registration, as reflected in the financial statements submitted to the bureau of workers' compensation.

The letter of credit required under division (D)(1) of section 4133.07 of the Revised Code shall be held by a depository designated by the administrator and shall secure payment by the alternate employer organization of all taxes, wages, benefits, or other entitlements due or otherwise pertaining to worksite employees, if the alternate employer organization does not make those payments when due.

(1) The resulting report of the auditor shall not include either of the following:
(a) A qualification or disclaimer of opinion as to adherence to generally accepted accounting principles;
(b) A statement expressing substantial doubt about the ability of the alternate employer organization to continue as a going concern.
