October 2017 update — Schedule change and updates to the ERA website

Schedule change

The Employer Reporting Application (ERA) team is committed to developing a quality product for our employer partners that is simple, accurate and easy to use.

On Oct. 4, DRS shared with all employers that the ERA schedule must change because testing has identified performance issues that must be resolved before DRS will launch ERA. We have added additional resources to the effort and are working hard with our vendor to improve performance. But even with these efforts, it is now clear we will not be able to launch with the ERA Early Adopters in October.

DRS will continue working with the vendor and will announce new rollout dates as soon as we are confident the new system is ready to meet your needs. If you have questions or concerns about the rollout, please contact us at or call Debbie Callar at 360-664-7167.

Updates to the ERA webpage

We add new ERA frequently asked questions to the webpage as they are developed. Be sure to check back often and let us know if you have any questions you’d like to add.
