AB 1394, Committee on Insurance. State Compensation Insurance Fund: executive appointments.
Existing law provides for the existence of the State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF) to be administered by a board of directors for the purpose of transacting workers’ compensation insurance, and insurance against the expense of defending any suit for serious and willful misconduct, against an employer or his or her agent, and insurance to employees and other persons of the compensation fixed by the workers’ compensation laws for employees and their dependents. Existing law authorizes the board of directors of SCIF to appoint a president, a chief financial officer, a chief operating officer, a chief information technology officer, a chief investment officer, a chief risk officer, and a general counsel.
This bill would additionally authorize the board of directors of SCIF to appoint a chief medical officer, a chief actuarial officer, a chief claims operations officer, and a chief of internal affairs, and make those positions subject to the Milton Marks Postgovernment Employment Restrictions Act of 1990.
