LIRAB Denies SCF Statutory Employer Argument
We received a favorable LIRAB decision overturning the Director's finding that our client, a membership club, was a statutory employer and ordering it liable for significant WC benefits. We successfully refuted the SCF's argument our client was an independent (general) contractor that undertook to perform work for another person pursuant to a contract. Instead, the LIRAB agreed the SCF was responsible.
We recognize that you have a choice when it comes to hiring an attorney. Particularly in complex claims or claims which require complex legal arguments, experienced attorneys can investigate the facts, apply the facts to the law, and ensure the client's rights are protected.
