According to The Washington Examiner, D.C. Councilwoman Mary Cheh is asking for an audit of the city’s workers compensation agency because of “concerns about improper denials … a general lack of knowledge of the relevant law … and even questions about whether the [agency] is properly managing claims.”
The workers compensation agency is charged with keeping an eye on D.C.’s financial liabilities and has broad authority over the workers compensation fund. Several disabled workers have said publicly that the city has been deducting life insurance benefits from their paychecks without giving life insurance policies.
