Successor employers; period of coverage
    
Sec. 3. (a) This section is subject to the provisions of IC 22-4-6.5 and IC 22-4-11.5.
    (b) Any employer subject to this article as successor to an employer pursuant to the provisions of IC 22-4-7-2(a) or IC 22-4-7-2(b) shall cease to be an employer at the end of the year in which the acquisition occurs only if the department finds that within such calendar year the employment experience of the predecessor prior to the date of disposition combined with the employment experience of the successor subsequent to the date of acquisition would not be sufficient to qualify the successor employer as an employer under the provisions of IC 22-4-7-1. No such successor employer may cease to be an employer subject to this article at the end of the first year of the current period of coverage of the predecessor employer. If all of the resources and liabilities of the experience account of an employer are assumed by another in accordance with the provisions of IC 22-4-10-6 or IC 22-4-10-7, such employer's status as employer and under this article is hereby terminated unless and until such employer subsequently qualifies under the provisions of IC 22-4-7-1 or IC 22-4-7-2 or elects to become an employer under sections 4 or 5 of this chapter.


    (c) If no application for termination, as herein provided, is filed by an employer and four (4) full calendar years have elapsed since any contributions have become payable from such employer, then and in such cases the department may terminate such employer's experience account.
