North Dakota WSI Employee Brings Lawsuit
When reading the articles months ago about the WSI’s wholesale firing of some of their employees, one knew there would soon be lawsuits. Todd Flanagan, a former fraud investigator, filed his lawsuit in Bismarck asking for reinstatement and back pay.
There will be more lawsuits in the future, especially from the whistle blowers that pointed out many inequities in WSI’s way of doing business.
I will have another post tomorrow on North Dakota trying to figure out why they were in a crisis in Workers Comp ten years ago and now have a huge surplus. The answer is simple, but they are going to pay an auditor many thousands of dollars for the obvious answer.
North Dakota is one of the few states where a monopolistic State Fund runs the Workers Comp system. These monopolistic funds have run into great problems with some of the states such as West Virginia and Nevada privatizing their Workers Comp programs.
I do not see North Dakota converting to an NCCI state any time soon.
