General Assembly Approves Revisions to Workers Compensation Penalty Statute

For years Dysart Willis has been at the forefront in representing North Carolina businesses who have received a Penalty Assessment Order from the Industrial Commission for failure to carry workers' compensation insurance.  Generally, NCGS § 97-93 requires that any employer with three of more employees have workers' comp coverage and NCGS § 97-94 allows for a $50 to $100 per day penalty if an employer fails to have such insurance. Additionally, the statute permits potential criminal charges and contempt proceedings. A focused effort by the Industrial Commission to enforce compliance has been in effect since roughly 2013. As discussed on this blog before, beginning in early 2017 the Industrial Commission adopted a punitive approach to these cases which has unnecessarily and unfairly threatened small businesses and business owners.
