Free Seminar Series Prepares Employers for Surprise Workplace Inspections

March 4, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- Stepped up enforcement efforts by the Economic and Employment Enforcement Coalition (EEEC) and a renewed seminar partnership with State Fund are calling attention to labor law compliance in the construction, agriculture, and general industries. To help employers learn about current laws and regulations, the seminars are being presented throughout the state.

“The most common violation found by the EEEC is not having workers’ comp insurance,” said Chris Kaiser, Program Manager of State Fund’s Safety and Health Services Department. “With citations being $1,000 per employee, those penalties can really add up. Our goal with these seminars is to help employers avoid such fines by making sure they are aware of current labor laws.”

Ten seminars are being held from Redding to San Diego during the course of 2010. Presentations will be given by experienced inspectors from the agencies that make up the EEEC: Cal/OSHA, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the Employment Development Department (EDD), the Labor Commissioner’s Office, and the Contractors State License Board (CSLB).

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about surprise inspections from the EEEC, to clarify their rights and responsibilities under state law, and to ask questions.

The events are open to the public. Visit to see when an event will be held in your area.

The seminars are part of State Fund’s Employer Education Series offered throughout the state on a variety of workers’ compensation topics.
