CALIFORNIA State—Payroll/Remuneration Tables the CA Labor Law

Attestation Software has analyzed California workers’ compensation laws and regulations that create a matrix for what constitutes wages which can include almost anything you provide to your employees and independent contractors. The first thing we did was read the California Labor Law that led us to five different agencies:

California Tax Center
EDD-Employment Development Department
DIR-Dept of Industrial Relations
DOI-Dept. of Insurance
CSLB-Contractors State License Board

The Department of Labor Standards Enforcement or DLSE provides the background resource validate the Payroll/Remuneration Tables. But the real starting point is to determine just how accurate your workers’ compensation insurance company premium statutory audits are.

Likewise, the WCIRB-WC Insurance Rating Bureau is an important source, too. From all of these departments, the California Labor Code created these taxes:

Admin Revolving User Assessment Fund
Uninsured Employer Benefit Trust Fund
Subsequent Injuries Benefits Trust Fund
Occupational Safety & Health Fund
Labor Enforcement & Compliance Fund
Fraud Account Assessment
Terrorism (9740)

Unlike Washington State, taxes are assessed on a percentage of dollars, not hours. But if you get audited, you can only use HOURS to ensure your regulatory compliance reporting.

Remember, all States query hours and dollars between these taxing authorities to find good audit prospects. Your chances of filing eight different inaccurate reports are pretty good. Unlike Washington that is more selective on what is taxed, California taxes everything: HOURS, OVERTIME, SICK PAY, VACATION PAY, HOLIDAY PAY, AND BONUS—No exceptions!

As complex as the California Workers’ Compensation Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan-1995 effective January 1, 2014 is, it is a mathematical matrix that can be integrated to ensure compliance reporting.

PS California has no Reciprocity. So, don’t get caught paying premiums out-of-State.
