CSLB-Sponsored Workers’ Comp Enforcement Law among those Taking Effect in 2011

Beginning January 1, 2011, the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) will be able to issue a “stop work” order to any licensed or unlicensed contractor who fails to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage for his or her employees a valuable tool for combating the underground economy. The new law will give CSLB unprecedented authority, enabling CSLB enforcement representatives to more effectively stop unlicensed, uninsured activity, and aid in the state’s efforts to assure a level playing field for licensees who follow workers’ compensation laws.
