Jeffrey Hart (Partner-Michigan), David Navarre (Associate-Michigan) and Mark Ledwin (Partner-White Plains) represented an insurer client before the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan in a collection action. The court entered judgment in favor of our insurance client in the amount of $1,409,814 for underpayment of workers’ compensation premiums on a national master policy. The case involved underpayment of workers’ compensation premiums and misrepresentation by the defendant in underreporting payroll by $14.1 million (estimated payroll was $9.9 million, actual was $24 million) and misclassification of its workers (merchandisers/demonstrators (reported) versus lumber-yard workers and carpenters (actual)).
