Hundreds of Cheating Contractors Identified in LETF Sweeps

Sweeps performed by the Labor Enforcement Task Force (LETF) in 2012 resulted in 474 inspections so far, and have identified 210 CSLB-related violations. The most common violations were failure to carry workers' compensation insurance and contracting without a license.

Formerly known as the Economic and Employment Enforcement Coalition, LETF was launched January 1, 2012, and is comprised of investigators from CSLB, the Department of Industrial Relations, and Employment Development Department, in collaboration with the Insurance Commissioner and Attorney General's Office. Investigative teams identify contractors operating in the underground economy and perform targeted inspections at active construction sites. The targeted inspections (instead of random sweeps) provide more efficient sweep operations and a stronger basis for legal action against those who contract illegally.

CSLB enforcement staff also participates in the LETF Advisory Committee that meets several times during the year to exchange information with industry representatives about construction industry trends and ideas on how to curb the underground economy.
