  3.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 2 of section 288.090, any employer participating in a shared work plan under section 288.500 who has not had at least twelve calendar months immediately preceding the calculation date throughout which his account could have been charged with benefits shall have a contribution rate equal to the highest contribution rate in the table in subsection 2 of this section, until such time as his account has been chargeable with benefits for the period of time sufficient to enable him to qualify for a computed rate on the same basis as other employers participating in shared work plans.

  4.  Employers who have been taxed at the maximum rate pursuant to this section for two consecutive years shall have a surcharge of one-quarter percent added to their contribution rate calculated pursuant to this section.  In the event that an employer remains at the maximum rate pursuant to this section for a third or subsequent year, an additional surcharge of one-quarter percent shall be annually assessed, but in no case shall the surcharge authorized in this subsection cumulatively exceed one percent.  Additionally, if an employer continues to remain at the maximum rate pursuant to this section an additional surcharge of one-half percent shall be assessed.  In no case shall the total surcharge assessed to any employer exceed one and one-half percent in any given year.

  5.  For a period of sixty days beginning ** October 16, 2015, an employer who reasonably believes that he or she has been assigned an erroneous experience rating as a result of the purchase of a company shall have the right to file a timely appeal for recovery of overpayments for the last five years due to such erroneous assignment.

*Effective 10-16-15, see § 21.250.  H.B. 150 was vetoed on May 5, 2015. The veto was overridden by the House on May 12, 2015, and by the Senate on September 16, 2015.

*Revisor's Note: This section was declared unconstitutional in Pestka et al. v. State, see 2016 annotation below.

**Word "with" appears in original rolls.

(2016) Only bills returned by the Governor on or after the fifth day before the end of the regular legislative session can be taken up during September veto session, thus Senate veto session vote to override the Governor's veto of HB 150 was untimely.  Pestka et al. v. State, No. SC95369 (Mo.).
