Money Service Business Workers' Comp Fraud
Work Group

The purpose of the work group is to review in depth the practices of the check cashing services industry that aid in workers' compensation premium fraud. Through research and hearings the work group shall identify the loopholes that allow "shell" construction companies to be established; evaluate the operation of check cashing services; identify any ambiguity related to enforcement of the laws governing these entities; and identify any potential revisions to the statutory framework to eliminate workers' compensation premium fraud.
