Employers Who Allegedly Failed to Obtain Workers Comp Insurance Are Indicted

Posted by: Briskman Briskman Greenberg

Three Illinois employers have been indicted by a Cook County grand jury on Class 4 felony charges for allegedly failing to obtain workers’ compensation insurance. If convicted, the employers face 1 to 3 years in the state prison and fines of up to $25,000.

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) named the individuals charged as follows.

In addition to being charged individually, John Linek was charged as President of Chicago’s SMS Logistics. While Linek has workers’ compensation insurance on other businesses, he has allegedly operated a trucking business without obtaining insurance, and at least one worker has been injured.

Kevin Warren has been charged individually and as President and Secretary of the Melrose Park company Symphony Transport, also known as Big R Transport. Although Warren reached a settlement agreement to secure insurance and pay a $10,000 fine, the insurance he obtained was allegedly canceled after a few months.

Ahmed Ghosien of the Hometown company Ghosien European Auto Werks was also charged. Ghosien agreed to pay a fine and secure insurance, but allegedly failed to make payments, resulting in the cancellation of the insurance after a few months.

All those charged are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

The IWCC has also taken action against uninsured employers by issuing citations. The Commission has cited 199 employers for being uninsured, collecting over $100,000 in fines and resulting in more than 1,000 employees being covered by workers’ compensation insurance.
