Department of Labor and Industry
Programs Selected For
Fiscal Year 1993 Statewide Audit;
|Public Release Date: March 23, 1994
Evaluate internal control structure: Special Workers'
Compensation Fund revenues, and Special Workers' Compensation Fund
Test compliance with certain finance-related legal provisions.
We found three areas where the internal control structure needed improvement:
- The department does not always verify the validity of a claim before making
- The Special Compensation Fund's uninsured section has not verified ongoing
permanent disability claims on a timely basis.
- The department paid temporary partial disability benefits without verifying the
claimants' employment status.
We found no departures from finance-related legal provisions.
