State Positions on Workers’ Compensation Compliance

·         States agencies are afraid to reduce benefits because of regulated and legislated programs

·         States will not require recipients to remain in the state under a doctor’s care to receive benefits

·         States are reluctant to prosecute employers who hire illegal workers

·         State “auditors” are not trained as external auditors

·         State supervisory and middle management staffing is by political appointment

 

Most workers’ compensation funding programs administered by the states are becoming insolvent. Since 2007, there have been no construction or manufacturing levels to adequately fund them. In order for these departments to justify their budgets, they must create taxes to satisfy the annual legislative budget review requirements or “scorecards”. When these scorecards are assigned to state regions, they turn into quotas targeting small business.
