All employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance under California labor laws in case of an employee on-the-job injury. When an employee files a claim for benefits, a number of legal issues could arise depending on the circumstances surrounding the claim. Whether you are an uninsured employer looking to minimize your business’s risks or you want advice about coverage issues and arbitration, consulting with a workers’ compensation defense attorney is advisable for all employers with employees on their payroll.
There are times when employees file fraudulent claims for workers’ compensation benefits that they are not legally qualified to receive. Employers end up paying the price for these acts of fraud via raised annual premiums and could end up paying even more if the employee files a lawsuit after making a fraudulent claim. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Sacks & Zolonz, LLP can help you and your business fight fraudulent claims in court.
We understand that many employers opt out of carrying insurance for a variety of reasons. However, when an employee files a claim for benefits, uninsured employers and their companies become extremely vulnerable and need expert legal counsel in order to avoid harsh penalties under both criminal and civil law.
