first_imgLANCASTER – A bill aimed at reducing workers’ compensation fraud in the roofing industry was signed by the governor. Assembly Bill 881, co-authored by Assemblyman Bill Emmerson, R-Redlands, and Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster, is aimed at companies improperly claiming a roofing-industry exception from workers’ compensation insurance by claiming they have no employees. “This is a common-sense measure that will greatly help an industry with some of the highest workers’ comp rates in the nation,” Runner said. “I am glad to see that Gov. Schwarzenegger agrees that the roofing industry needed some additional help even after passing a monumental workers’ comp reform in 2004.” Runner said the roofing industry has some of the highest workers’ compensation rates and that fraud has helped push those costs up. Runner said when roofing companies under-report their payroll and carry substandard levels of workers’ compensation insurance, their employees are put at an even higher risk without appropriate insurance coverage in place. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Insurers would be required to complete an annual audit of their California policyholders, with the costs of the audit included as a portion of the insurer’s customary basic underwriting charge. The measure also directs the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Ratings Bureau to gather annual statistical data for the California roofing industry. At one point the bill had been held up over concerns from the Governor’s Office that it would set a precedent for other industries. Runner believes that will not be the case.
