Correction on Tina Fey Article
Even Tina Fey has to have Workers Comp coverage. A recent article in the Insurance Journal indicates that Tina Fey may have had continuous coverage. I found an article last weekend which said she owed $79,000.
However, the newest article did not say that WC coverage was found for a period from November 2012 to November 2013.
The New York Comp Board said that it was a clerical error. I have rarely seen a WC Board admit to the press that a clerical error was made after fining a company for no WC insurance.
I rarely do previous article retractions of any type. However, I did not want to accuse anyone of not having WC coverage if , in fact, they did have a policy in effect.
Even Tina Fey is not above the law when it comes to having WC coverage in place to cover any on the job accidents. Many states such as North Carolina have been lax in enforcing the laws and rules which require WC coverage for employers.
The actress and writer could have been in hot water if one of her employees was injured on the job with no WC benefits.
