            (1) (a) The commission or the division on behalf of the commission may maintain a suit in any court of the state to enjoin any employer, within this chapter or Chapter 3, Utah Occupational Disease Act, from further operation of the employer's business, when the employer fails to provide for the payment of benefits in one of the three ways provided in Section 34A-2-201.

            (b) Upon a showing of failure to provide for the payment of benefits, the court shall enjoin the further operation of the employer's business until the payment of these benefits has been secured by the employer as required by Section 34A-2-201. The court may enjoin the employer without requiring bond from the commission or division.

            (a) the commission or the division on behalf of the commission may file suit under Subsection (1); and

            (b) the court may, ex parte, issue without bond a temporary injunction restraining the further operation of the employer's business.
