Defendants plead guilty to workers' compensation fraud

Two defendants recently pleaded guilty to charges of infringing on the rights of an injured worker, among others. Both Salinas County, California men admitted to hiding an event which would have possibly lead to an injured worker receiving workers' compensation. They also stated that they lied in order to obtain a lower premium for workers' comp insurance. They also failed to file their payroll tax returns with the intention of evading taxes.

The two men, a father and son, spent three years working as Farm Labor Contractors. During that time, they concealed their workers' injuries and did not report them; neither did they provide their injured workers with medical treatment, or any of the other benefits to which they were entitled. The two men also admitted to conspiring to commit insurance premium fraud.

According to the report, the two failed to report all of their employees' wages. This was an effort to avoid paying payroll taxes. The reports that were sent to the Employment Development Department were different from those that were sent to the insurance company during the same time periods. The men were reporting different sums for payroll and number of employees.

For those who have been injured on the job in California, workers' compensation is there to help support them and their families until they are able to work again. Anyone who has been in an on-the-job accident can contact an experienced personal injury attorney to guide them in filing for workers' compensation. This will help him or her avoid any scams and may help prevent any unnecessary delay in receiving benefits.
