Featured Remarkable Results Radio Podcast - Carolyn Coquillette
Carolyn Coquillette discovered wrenching in 2000, shortly after graduating from college. A rare female mechanic, her nickname at the service station and in professional circles became "Luscious Garage."
Carolyn owns Luscious Garage, a hybrid specialty shop in San Francisco and probably the best known hybrid shop in the country. She also owns Shop-Ware, a software company that allows repair shops to run online and paper-free.
New Law (AB 2883)Tightens Workers' Comp Exclusion for Officers, Board Members
This is a repeat of a previous article, but may provide some additional critical details.
A new law has made changes to the officer exclusion for workers' compensation in California but it could cause problems for policies that do not incept on Jan. 1.
Starting in 2017, an officer can be only excluded from workers' comp coverage if he or she owns 15% or more of the company's stock. That's changed from the current rules that set no ownership levels for officers and directors that want to claim a workers' comp exclusion, which has created confusion as well as an opportunity for fraud.
