Targeted Inspection and Consultation Assessments 2010

On March 1st 2010 Cal-OSHA will mail assessments to employers with experience modifications of 125% or more as of 12/31/2009. Payment is due in 30 days or turned over to the State Franchise Tax Board for collection. The amount of the assessment is determined by the annual payroll generated in the last period. For FAQ’s including assessment amounts please check out https://www.dir.ca.gov/dosh/ticffaq.html . The cap was raised from $2,500 to $10,000 in mid 2008. There are a significant number of ex mod miscalculations due to claims and/or audit that can be reversed. If you would like to review your ex mod and workers comp program please contact me.
