California Earthquake Authority to Pay Back Wages

February 16, 2012

The California Earthquake Authority, the state’s quasi-private earthquake insurer, is planning to pay furlough back wages to current and former agency employees who lost salary to the policy, the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

CEA told the Bee that the agency would expand furlough lawsuit settlement terms reached with SEIU Local 1000 and California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment to non-represented staff.

CEA employs about 25 state civil service workers, and repaying them won’t come from the state budget, as CEA operates on money from investments and premiums, according to the Bee article.
