Workers' Compensation Board

Ensuring Employer Coverage (Follow-Up Report)

The Workers' Compensation Law requires most employers to provide workers' compensation coverage for their employees. The Workers' Compensation Board is responsible for ensuring that employers comply with this requirement. In audit 2006-S-47, we examined the enforcement actions taken by the Board and found that they were appropriate. We also found that the Board had recently enhanced its automated tracking system and, as a result, was better able to identify noncompliant employers. We further noted that the Board's efforts could be even more effective if certain other improvements were made. When we followed up on these matters with Board officials, we found that all of our audit recommendations had been implemented.
