Dallas-Area Employer Ordered to Repay Nearly $1M to Texas Mutual

December 4, 2009

Texas Mutual Insurance Company reports that Donna Iverson, owner of C&D Business Services Inc., and Carol Wiesman pleaded guilty to workers’ compensation fraud-related charges.

The 299th District Court in Austin sentenced Iverson and Wiesman to 10 years’ deferred adjudication and ordered them to repay $949,702 to Texas Mutual.

Iverson and Wiesman were involved in a scheme from April 2003 through March 2006 to conceal business relationships and payroll records from Texas Mutual for C&D Business Services Inc. and C&D Services. Both companies were temporary employment agencies with offices in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Because workers’ compensation insurance premium is based in part on payroll, such a scheme results in a business paying less premium than it actually owes.
