An insurer’s denial of a liability claim was overturned by a panel of the Financial Complaints Authority of Australia (AFCA), which ordered that court proceedings be monitored to determine whether a plaintiff is personally liable for injuries suffered during an accident.

The owner of the vehicle filed a claim with Lifestyle Insurance Group under its recreational vehicle policy’s liability coverage after it became the subject of a lawsuit in June, alleging that its actions resulted in serious injuries sustained by a tow truck driver, named Mr. A, in August 2019.

Mr. A was lying under the insured vehicle before the car suddenly fell off the blocks it was resting on and “came to rest” on his chest. Lawyers representing Mr. A argued that the plaintiff was negligent in releasing the handbrake against the instructions of the tow truck driver and failing to inform Mr. A of what he had done.

Lifestyle Insurance did not dispute that the plaintiff had a valid claim, but said the benefit could not cover the event because it was covered by a “statutory or compulsory insurance policy”, which had been an exclusion from the recreational vehicle police.

The insurer argued that the exclusion applied because Mr A had been injured in the line of duty and had filed a claim against Workcover QLD and the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC).

The AFCA disagreed with Lifestyle Insurance’s assessment, saying it could not enforce the exclusion until legal proceedings determined whether the claimant was liable to pay the costs.

“If Mr A’s injury were found to be the result of the plaintiff’s negligence, it would most likely be considered an accident arising out of the use of the recreational vehicle,” the AFCA said.

“The panel accepts that this falls within the terms of coverage provided by the policy.”

He also said it was unclear whether TAC was compensating MA and suggested that the statement made against the plaintiff was greater than what would be covered by a Workcover claim.

The panel asked the insurer to continue to monitor the proceedings, saying it would be unfair to apply the exclusion before the trial has issued its decision.

“If the court decides, or if the parties to the legal proceedings agree, to resolve the proceedings through the legal and compulsory regime, the insurer can then close its case,” he said.

“Otherwise, if liability were to be held against the plaintiff for matters not covered by the statutory or compulsory scheme, the insurer must determine its liability in accordance with the terms of the policy.”

By the Editorial Board

Portraying America as a hopeless case of decadence and economic disaster, former President Donald Trump declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election on Tuesday. Everything about Trump’s speech – a rambling, hour-long monologue of lies , complaints and wild exaggerations – was exhausting to watch and no doubt frustrating for Republican leaders hoping to recover from the November 8 midterm disappointment and rebuild their party without him at the top of the ticket.

Trump is back whether Republicans like it or not. A big question is whether Democrats want him back. He’s like a migraine that won’t go away, but he might be the most beatable Republican on the predictable 2024 lineup.

People also read…

At least for now, Trump will have to campaign without many of the advantages he once enjoyed. Rupert Murdoch’s media conglomerate, which includes Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, withdrew its support and began openly criticizing Trump. Congressional leadership appears to be distancing itself, leaving wacky representatives like Florida’s Matt Gaetz and Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene as its main cheerleaders. Even Missouri Senator Josh Hawley refuses to raise his fist in defense of Trump.

Trump’s legal woes are piling up, including two Justice Department investigations into Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol uprising and his unlawful withholding of thousands of government documents — some highly classified — in his estate of Mar-a-Lago. His business is on trial in New York, and a Georgia grand jury is investigating his efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election result. At least part of Trump’s motive for announcing now is to forestall these legal actions.

The word exaggeration doesn’t do justice to the wild embellishments that formed the bulk of Trump’s speech. As usual under his presidency, hardly a sentence left his mouth without needing a factual clarification or an outright lie. To paint a picture of economic decline and social catastrophe, he distorted national gasoline prices, the state of the strategic petroleum reserve, the nation’s economic status while in power, tariffs on Chinese products and the number of illegal border crossings by immigrants, and drugs allegedly smuggled by immigrants.

Trump said, “I’ve gone decades – decades – without a war. The first president to do so for such a long time. Decades! It’s a headache for a president who only served four years.

Trump managed not to say a word on the biggest day of his presidency, when he pointed to Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021 and sparked a crowd to storm the halls of Congress and halt election confirmation. by Joe Biden.

Trump’s history of lies and democracy-denying authoritarianism is the biggest obstacle to his success. But Trump’s success story, despite his seemingly insurmountable responsibilities, suggests only fools would count him out for 2024.

Some public sector bodies of the Punjab government have disappeared and are an undue burden on the public treasury. They include Punjab Irrigation and Drainage Authority (PIDA), Provincial Strategic Coordinating Council, Ministry of Home Affairs and a few others.

PUDA was established within the Punjab Irrigation Department (PID) in 1997 to introduce reforms with the participation of farmers. Donor agencies had funded him to establish the inclusive farmer project. However, nothing like this could be done, instead things got worse. Regional water authorities and farmers’ organizations (FOs) have been trained under this vast project in selected areas. Under the new scheme, the Punjab Irrigation Department (PID) was to be abolished and replaced by PIDA.

According to the World Bank, farmers’ organizations have resolved more than 2,800 water disputes, including 1,758 cases related to water theft. According to a survey, the amount of water in the system has increased as water theft issues have been addressed. The purpose of creating the authority was to involve farmers in the decision-making process of canal water management, but unfortunately the political elite and bureaucracy did not allow its success.

The government of Punjab, by an ordinance, abrogated the authority. However, another authority without functions was created. The reason given for repealing the PIDA was that the authority had failed to achieve its objectives. There was less collection of Abiyana in areas under PIDA i.e. 45% in its jurisdiction compared to the department which was 70%. After the conversion of PIDA into Punjab Khal Panchayat Authority (PKPA) in May 2019, its function disappeared completely but the army of senior and junior officers are still stationed here.

Sources also said that there are three general manager positions, in this department where 20th grade chief engineers of the irrigation department are assigned and they also receive deputies allowance in addition to salaries. The Secretary of the Department of Irrigation is the chief executive of this authority. Similarly, there are posts of deputy general managers where supervising engineers of the supervising department are appointed with all the privileges.

It should be noted that the secretary of the department receives a car, benefits and 400 liters of gasoline from the authority. This is in addition to what he is asking for from the department. Similarly, the minister who is the chairman of the authority also receives 400 liters of gasoline and other social benefits. The managing directors each receive three hundred liters of gasoline and other monetary facilities. The benefits of assistant general managers and other officers are distinct. Drivers and other ministerial personnel are added to this.

A former senior authority figure explained why they receive salaries and benefits when there is no work at PKPA. He said that on the one hand, junior officers were appointed to senior positions in the irrigation department, while on the other hand, senior officers were dismissed here. He suggested that the government should eliminate all transfers of senior officers and merge junior staff in the irrigation department. Apart from that, instead of giving them salaries without considerable charges, they should be given responsibilities in various matters; otherwise, they should be removed according to the directory’s removal policy.

It should be noted that the department’s performance is very unsatisfactory, water theft is common, and there is no ransom recovery mechanism. Although there are common stories of corruption in major projects, as the letter from the Asian Development Bank says it all. According to the documents, there are four slots for the 20th year in the defunct PKPA. One of the General Managers and 3 General Managers (administration, finance and operations). Added to this are four deputy general manager posts in grade 19, 15 executive posts in grade 18 and 84 officer posts in grade 17. Similarly, there are many slots for junior staff. A total of 285 sanctioned positions exist in the authority and 151 are filled while 134 are vacant.

Moreover, according to the sources, the total budget approved for the authority for the year 2021-22 was 292 million rupees, including 200 million rupees for salaries, 39 million rupees for travel and transport, 26 million for advertisements and 12 million for repairs and maintenance. CM Ch Parvez Elahi, Chief Secretary Abdullah Khan Sumbal, Minister Hashim Dogar and Finance Secretary Wasif Khurshid should take note of various bodies which are almost extinct like PKPA, PSCB etc. Such projects should be abolished and their personnel utilized in parent departments. Otherwise, the waste of public money will continue unabated. In addition, the authorities should also conduct a thorough study to find out why these foreign funding programs with popular participation generally fail.

The University of North Carolina system argues that a recent decision by the North Carolina Court of Appeals exposes the university to “massive liability”. The decision would allow NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill students to sue for fees paid during COVID-19 campus closures.

University officials on Tuesday filed documents asking the North Carolina Supreme Court to hear the case. The state’s highest court already issued an order on Oct. 21 temporarily preventing the trial from moving forward.

In a related memo, a group representing NC defense attorneys filed a brief supporting the UNC system case on Tuesday.

North Carolina State graduate student Joseph Lannan and UNC-CH undergraduate Landry Kuehn seek reimbursement of fees paid in fall 2020, when their campuses were closed for most students . Lannan and Kuehn argue that their schools broke “implied in fact” contracts with students at the two flagship campuses.

“The Court of Appeals allowed the breach of contract claim to proceed, finding that by simply asserting the existence of an implied contract, the plaintiff had avoided the sovereign immunity of the university,” wrote officials. lawyers representing the university’s board of trustees. “The Court of Appeal also failed to take into account that the students knew that when it came time to pay the tuition they would not be reimbursed.”

“The panel’s decision exposes the University to massive liability in this matter following claims by tens of thousands of students seeking reimbursement of fees of nearly $1,000.00 each,” the memoir added. the UNC. “And the decision opens the University to future legal action by its students for any changes in any aspect of student life, even if those changes were necessary in the interest of public safety.”

“Equally concerning is the fact that under the Court of Appeals decision, anyone who pays a fee to a state agency will be able to plead breach of implied contract and proceed to discovery and possibly at trial without any regard for sovereign immunity,” according to the brief.

The NC Association of Defense Attorneys raised its own concerns in an amicus curiae brief.

“[T]The Court of Appeal found that since the plaintiffs believed the fees entitled them to an on-campus experience, they sought relief. If the state waives its immunity just [by] charge a fee, then fee-funded government operations statewide will be reduced or
even eliminated,” attorney Steven Bader wrote. “It’s especially troubling if the plaintiff doesn’t even need to prove that the state charged a fee for a specific service.”

The group of defense attorneys argues the case could have implications beyond state government. “Private businesses will also be affected,” Bader wrote. “Following Lannan, fee payers in almost any context can characterize a fee as an implied contract in effect, even if the company makes no promises about a customer’s experience and advertises ‘no refunds.’ such allegations are ripe for class action lawsuits.”

Lannan and Kuehn filed papers Oct. 27 urging the state Supreme Court to allow their lawsuit to continue.

“In the fall 2020 semester, despite the pandemic, 14 of the 16 constituent universities continued with campus life, keeping campus facilities open. However, two universities, North Carolina State University (NCSU) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), have closed their campuses, expelled students (other than athletes) from campus, closed student unions and recreational facilities, canceled all artistic performances and barred access to sporting events,” lawyers for the students argued. “NCSU and UNC-CH charged students fees for many activities they closed.”

“It was not, as the defendant the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina … seeks to euphemize, a simple change in the mode of teaching: it was a total closure of the campus, with the eviction of non-athletic students from campus housing,” according to the students’ brief.

“Disregarding the constitutional mandate that people have access to the University of North Carolina at no cost ‘whenever possible,’ the Board refused to return a penny of the millions of hard-earned dollars it raised in tuition fees, even though he never provided the services for which those fees were paid,” the students argued.

The state Supreme Court will decide whether to hear the university’s appeal. If not, the case will be returned to a trial court for further action.

Pushpa Girimaji

The horrifying collapse of the suspension bridge over the Machchhu River in Morbi, Gujarat brings back painful memories of many other preventable man-made disasters in the country caused by ruthless neglect. Ironically, days before it reopened, Jaysukhbhai Patel, Managing Director of Oreva Group (Ajanta Manufacturing Pvt Ltd), which had been awarded the contract to repair and maintain the bridge, told a press conference that the repairs would last at least eight to 10 years. They didn’t even last eight days.

The inspection, assessment, rehabilitation and maintenance of old suspension bridges is extremely complex and specialized work, especially when it comes to the main supporting part – the cables. Wires can crack due to active and stress corrosion. This iconic 143-year-old, 233-meter-long structure, supported by cables, required experts in the field to restore it and ensure its safety.

According to preliminary investigations, the floor of the bridge has been replaced, thus increasing its weight. But the old corroded cables were neither changed nor reinforced.

On the day of the accident, there were approximately 250 people on deck. Public safety was compromised at every step. How can the government allow a private entity to inaugurate and reopen a public bridge?

Yes, Oreva was at fault, but the public authority is also responsible. The government had a greater responsibility: to entrust the work to experts. Given the age of the bridge, it was also necessary to have an independent safety audit carried out after the completion of the repairs, to determine its bearing capacity and to ensure good crowd control. Failure to do all of this is a violation of the fundamental rights of citizens.

In addition to criminal prosecution, the amount of compensation determined by the court must be paid not only by Oreva, but also by government officials who failed to secure the bridge.

The Supreme Court has consistently spoken of having comprehensive legislation to deal with the tort liability of the state and its organs.

In Municipal Corporation of Delhi Vs Uphaar Tragedy Victims Association (2011), the Supreme Court referred to this: “We hope and believe that the legislature will give utmost attention to putting in place appropriate legislation to deal with public law claims for violation of fundamental rights guaranteed to citizens, at the hands of the State and its agents”.

Subsequently, in 2014, in Vadodara Municipal Corporation Vs Purshottam Murjani, he again spoke of the need for such a law. In August last year, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court ordered the Union Government, in response to a written petition, to consider bringing forward a State Tort Bill. within six months (K Pushpavanam Vs Union of India).

Finally, in tragedies such as these, the criminal lawsuits as well as the civil lawsuits brought by the families of the victims to obtain compensation drag on for years, plunging many families who have lost wage-earning members into deep economic distress. .

The slowness of the legal system actually punishes the victims rather than the perpetrators. There must be separate expedited tribunals exclusively to deal with such man-made disasters so that the case is quickly closed and justice is done.

Each new Russian attack on Ukrainian civilian targets only facilitates and brings closer the international consensus on Russia’s responsibility.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video speech, reports a correspondent of Ukrinform.

The full text of the speech is provided below:

Good health to you, dear Ukrainians!

Currently, restoration work is still underway in the areas where Russian missiles hit today. We are doing everything we can to restore the energy and water supply. And we will restore it.

Russian terrorists do not have such missiles that could hurt the Ukrainian desire to live, to live in a civilized way and to take care of each other. What if someone over there in the Kremlin listened to their crazed propagandists and decided that darkness in Ukraine would help put pressure on Ukrainians, then let them not be surprised at their losses when they see how Ukrainians are waging ” negotiations” in the dark.

Today, our air forces and everyone involved in protecting the skies did a great job. Most of the objects that the terrorists identified as targets have been saved. This morning alone, terrorists used 55 cruise missiles in a massive strike, 45 of which were shot down.

I thank all the Air Force Commands for this result: South, North, East and West, as well as all the units of the Defense Forces involved in the protection of our skies.

In addition, four other Russian helicopters were shot down today: three attack Ka-52s and one Mi-8.

Of course, we will continue to strengthen our air defense. But already now, for ten shots, terrorists have to spend at least four times more missiles. Russia has an even worse record when it comes to drones, including those provided by its Iranian accomplices. And the world sees it. She finds that the old “2nd World Army” is no longer even the 22nd in terms of efficiency. And we will do everything to reach the second hundred. And so it will be.

I would like to mention in particular the units and employees of the National Emergency Service of Ukraine, which last week and today eliminated the consequences of the terrorist attacks. They worked even despite the threat of repeated strikes and extinguished dozens of fires.

Huge gratitude to all energy workers, utility workers, local communities, regional governments – to everyone getting back to normal life.

Same recognition to those of our people who, each at their level, guarantee that there will be a response to terrorists.

There will be a response on the battlefield. And I want to remind you that the total level of personnel losses of the Russian occupiers is almost 72,000.

There will also be a response to terrorists in international relations. The complete international isolation of the terrorist state is only a matter of time.

There will be a response in the field of criminal responsibility – all those involved in Russian terrorism, all those who organized, executed and justified it, will be responsible for it before the international tribunal.

Each new Russian attack on our civilian targets only facilitates and brings closer the international consensus on Russia’s responsibility.

And the fragments of the Russian rocket that fell on the territory of Moldova only remind us how important it is to protect ourselves together from this evil – from rashism, which recognizes neither state borders nor human values.

Today the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic visited Ukraine – one of our greatest friends.

The Czech Republic currently holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and this is how Russia treats European structures: during the visit of the Czech representative – 55 cruise missiles. However, no matter what they think in Moscow, Ukraine takes care of itself and does what it wants.

Today we signed a special statement with the Prime Minister regarding our country’s Euro-Atlantic integration. The Czech Republic confirmed that it would support Ukraine’s NATO membership. The statement also contains specific directions for our cooperation in implementing NATO standards in Ukraine.

We are beginning to work on signing such declarations with all members of the Alliance.

I had a call with German Chancellor Scholz. I thanked him for the IRIS-T air defense system provided and informed about the results achieved by the German system. We discussed the possibilities of increasing German support for Ukraine, especially in the restoration of our infrastructure after the terrorist attacks.

I also spoke with the UN Secretary General, António Guterres. I informed him of the new level of escalation due to Russian actions.

The terror against Ukrainian energy facilities, moreover in the context of Russia’s attempts to exacerbate the global food crisis, is a clear indication that Russia will continue to oppose the entire international community. And if so, Russia should have no place in the UN Security Council and all other international structures.

I am grateful to Mr. Scholz and Mr. Guterres for supporting our actions to preserve the grain export initiative and prevent the spread of large-scale famine in parts of the world. It is very important now to prevent this global destabilization that Russia seeks. And we can prevent it.

Today I signed three decrees on the allocation of our warriors. A total of 406 Ukrainian Armed Forces warriors received state awards.

I would like to separately thank the warriors of the units of the National Guard of Ukraine, who perform tasks in the Donetsk region. They execute them with precision and efficiency. They skillfully defend their positions and exert significant pressure on the rashists. Thanks for that, guys!

Thank you to all those who make Russia get used to the idea that neither the army, nor terror, nor anything else will help them to conquer Ukraine!

Glory to all our heroes!

Glory to our fantastic people!

Glory to Ukraine!

Federal communications law protects video-sharing site TikTok Inc. from liability for the death of a 10-year-old girl who died while attempting a challenge on TikTok that encourages viewers to choke on household items.

A Pennsylvania federal judge has ruled that Section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act requires him to dismiss claims by Nylah Anderson’s mother against TikTok because the law grants broad immunity to third-party content sites .

Hiding in a bedroom closet, Nylah attempted the so-called Blackout Challenge. Her mother found Nylah unconscious, hanging from the strap of a handbag. She tried unsuccessfully to revive her daughter with CPR. According to court information, three deep ligature marks on Nylah’s neck confirmed that she suffered as she struggled to free herself. After several days in intensive care, Nylah passed away.

Section 230 provides that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be considered the publisher of information provided by another information content provider”. It further prohibits the bringing of any cause of action and the imposition of any liability under any state or local law that is inconsistent with this immunity.

Nylah’s mother has filed product liability, negligence, wrongful death and survival claims against TikTok. Anderson urged the court to hold TikTok liable as the designer, manufacturer and seller of a defective product, not for conduct as a publisher. She also presented evidence that TikTok knew its algorithm was encouraging the challenge to children and alleged that four other children had died attempting the challenge.

But the court determined that the various “creative” claims could not overcome the reality that the challenge posted on TikTok’s site was created by others and that TikTok could not be held liable as a publisher. Judge Paul S. Diamond wrote that Section 230 excludes Anderson’s product liability and negligence claims, upon which his claims for wrongful death and survival depend.

“What matters is not the name of the cause of action – defamation versus negligence versus intentional infliction of emotional distress – what matters is whether the cause of action inherently requires the court to treat the defendant as the “publisher or speaker” of content provided by another.”

By excluding interactive service providers from being treated as publishers of their third-party content, Congress immunized “decisions relating to the monitoring, filtering, and removal of content from [their] network[s]— actions essentially related to the role of a publisher”, according to the court.

Other challenges

TikTok, which is owned by Chinese company ByteDance Ltd., faces other challenges and criticism.

A group of states are investigating whether the social media platform is being inappropriately marketed to children. Police fear another of the videos on its site is teaching people how to hook up and steal cars.

Another lawsuit blames the site for the death of a 14-year-old African-American girl. This complaint claims that TikTok’s algorithm directs more violent videos towards minority viewers than white users.

Texas is investigating TikTok for potential human trafficking and child privacy violations.

In recent years, there have been other legal challenges to the broad immunity enjoyed by social media platforms, including those that tried to hold websites responsible for a terrorist attack and a mass shooting. , but the courts upheld the broad immunity.

There have also been talks in Washington between politicians on both sides of the aisle about revising the immunity law.

Earlier this month, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear a case about whether social media companies can be sued over targeted content recommendations. The complaint alleges that Google bears part of the responsibility for an ISIS terrorist attack in 2015.

Judge Diamond seemed to acknowledge that some people had questioned section 230. In his summary conclusion, he wrote:

“Nylah Anderson’s death was caused by her attempt to complete the ‘Blackout Challenge.’ Defendants did not create the challenge; instead, they made it readily available on their site. The algorithm of defendants was a means of bringing the Challenge to the attention of those likely to be most interested. In so promoting the work of others, defendants published that work – exactly the activity that Section 230 protects from liability. The wisdom of conferring such immunity is something properly supported by Congress, not by the courts.”

Not My Employee – How Professional Employment Organizations Can Protect Against Unnecessary Liability | Goldberg Segalla https://inzercepujcek.net/not-my-employee-how-professional-employment-organizations-can-protect-against-unnecessary-liability-goldberg-segalla/ Wed, 26 Oct 2022 01:56:54 +0000 https://inzercepujcek.net/not-my-employee-how-professional-employment-organizations-can-protect-against-unnecessary-liability-goldberg-segalla/ Key points to remember: New Jersey’s concept of duplication allows the workers’ compensation court to find that more than one entity is an employer.

Key points to remember:

  • New Jersey’s concept of duplication allows the workers’ compensation court to find that more than one entity is an employer.

  • Where the only issue on a claim for medical and/or temporary disability benefits is which employer or carrier is liable for benefits, court rules allow the judge to order an employer to pay benefits without prejudice, subject to subject to subsequent reimbursement if another party is found liable.

  • Professional employment organizations must protect themselves by having clear guidelines and policies for determining the employees to whom they will provide benefits.

During a recent court hearing, I saw a judge issue an order requiring a Professional Employment Organization (PEO) to pay benefits without prejudice to an employee who was in no way associated with the PEO , according to the lawyer. The clearly distraught attorney argued that the PEO had been wrongly named in the action and had only recently formed a relationship with the actual employer. The business relationship did not exist during the alleged period of employment. The actual employer had not filed a response to the claim request and, therefore, was not present in court. In any event, the judge relied on a provision of the court rules that allowed him to order an employer – the PEO – to pay benefits without prejudice, subject to reimbursement, if the only question on the claim for benefits is who is the right employer or carrier. .

As described in the scenario above, sometimes when a party does the right thing, they can still be punished by the court. The judge issued an order against the sole party in the action because the actual employer had failed to respond to the claim request. Based on the concept of duplication and this provision of the court rules, it is imperative that PEOs take the necessary steps to protect themselves from possible unfair liability by taking steps to determine to which employees they are liable for payment. benefits.

The concept of duplication allows the court to find more than one employer for the purpose of providing workers’ compensation benefits. Among other factors, the court may determine an employer/employee relationship based on a rental agreement, payment of wages, the right to direct and control the work, and the ability to hire/fire/recall the employee. Sometimes, when a PEO leases an employee to a client, these factors may lead the court to conclude that the PEO and the client company could be employers for the purpose of providing benefits. But what if the client company hires an independent PEO employee and does not provide benefits? As seen in the scenario here, the judge will likely attempt to order the PEO to provide benefits to someone who was never its employee.

So how can PEOs best prepare to defend against this situation, you ask. By making it very clear to whom they are to provide benefits. Often, PEOs enter into a contract with a corporate client to provide health care benefits, payroll services, or some other type of service. The PEO and the client company clearly have a business relationship, but the PEO should make it clear that the business relationship does not automatically result in any of the client company’s employees being considered an employee of the PEO. The PEO should clearly state in the contract with a client company which employees it will cover for benefits. It should describe how these employees are hired and what business activities fall under the agreement with the client. The PEO should maintain a complete list of employees leased to the client company. It should specify that employees who are not hired by the PEO are not covered for any benefits.

The judge will consider the above factors to determine who is an employer in a PEO/client company case. Although the court’s rules still give the judge discretion to order a PEO to provide benefits without prejudice if there is a dispute as to who is the correct employer, providing the judge with answers to the questions below above will make it much more difficult for the judge to order a PEO to provide benefits, if all the factors weigh against the PEO as the employer. If we can provide the judge with a contract stating that only employees who have gone through the PEO hiring process are covered, a provision in the contract noting that the PEO does not direct or control the activities of on-site workers, and shows a list of all employees covered by the PEO, we will be in a much stronger position to argue against employment than if we simply said “this person is not an employee”.

The New Jersey workers’ compensation law must be interpreted broadly to provide benefits to injured workers. However, these benefits must come from the right employer/carrier and PEOs can use the tips above to protect themselves from paying benefits to employees hired independently by client companies.
