Business Failure to Maintain Workers' Compensation Insurance
Most businesses know that every North Carolina employer with a minimum number of regular employees is required to continuously maintain liability insurance for injuries that workers suffer while on the job. What most businesses do not know is that in addition to civil fines and penalties, failure to maintain such insurance can result in criminal charges and convictions for the business owner or manager. Business owners or managers can even be charged with a Class H Felony if the failure is deemed willful. The N.C. Industrial Commission has its own team of skilled law enforcement officers who investigate and prosecute these criminal charges. Parton & Associates' attorneys have the skill and experience to successfully defend you from these charges at trial, and have experience working with Industrial Commission investigators and the State to resolve charges without trial so that you can get back to business.
