  • Auto & Fuel Worker’s Comp

    Posted by shadowoods on July 28, 2014 at 3:10 pm

    Our worker’s compensation insurance company wants to classify all of our cashiers as technicians.  The cashiers never enter the garage and all gas is self-serve.  Is there any other auto repair shop that still sells gas and has had any success in classifying cashiers and technicians separately?

    It’s been a number of years since we had gas, but they were always different and cashiers were a lot less. My guess is that so much cheating went on that the insurance company set a new policy to address it. 

    Have you asked the agent if you can provide additional documentation or sign a statement or something else to get the underwriters to reconsider? If not, I would go insurance shopping. I doubt that all companies to this.

    You are absolutely correct — shopping like mad!  The insurance auditor suggested to file a complaint with the state insurance commissioner which I am going to do.  Thanks for you feedback.
