Workers’ comp charges impact California employer

Although there are many things for an employer to focus on, compliance with workers’ compensation laws and regulations is imperative. There are numerous pressures that can always arise, but the penalties for workers’ comp violations (such as fines and potential imprisonment) can be especially tough. If you are a business owner in San Francisco, it is smart to make sure you understand California law and are able to provide employees with quality workers’ compensation in case a workplace injury accident ever occurs.

After an insurance company alerted the Monterey County DA’s Office in 2009, a California business became the focal point of an investigation. According to investigators, the business owner was reporting fraudulent information in order to lower his insurance premiums.

While the man faces over six years in prison, the district attorney’s office has stated that he will be put on probation. The Employment Development Department became involved in the investigation to determine just how much this employer failed to pay and estimates that he owes $294,594 in restitution (on top of penalties and fines).

When an employee becomes injured on the job, a multitude of problems can arise. For example, if a construction site accident causes a worker to have a permanent disability, they could have hefty medical expenses, lost wages and be unable to ever find employment in that line of work again. As a result, employers should make sure that their employees are taken care of in case they ever become injured while working. For anyone with questions pertaining to workers’ compensation, talking to an attorney could be helpful.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
