Dulich Added to California Workers’ Comp Ethics Advisory Committee

July 21, 2020

California Division of Workers’ Compensation Administrative Director George Parisotto has appointed Jill A. Dulich to serve as a member of the Workers’ Compensation Ethics Advisory Committee.

Dulich will fill the position of a member of the public representing self-insured employers, previously held by Jim Zelko.

Dulich has been the claims and operations manager for the California Self-Insurers’ Security Fund. She also serves as the executive director for the National Council of Self-Insurers and for the California Self-Insurers Association.

Zelko has been reappointed to the committee, but in the position of a member of the public outside the workers’ comp community in light of his recent retirement from Kaiser Foundation Health Plan.

The Ethics Advisory Committee reviews all ethics complaints from the public against workers’ comp administrative law judges without learning the names of complainants or judges, and then makes recommendations to the DWC administrative director and the chief judge. The members meet quarterly and serve without compensation.

The committee includes a member of the public representing organized labor, a member of the public representing insurers, a member of the public representing self-insured employers, an attorney who formerly practiced before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board and who usually represented insurers or employers, an attorney who formerly practiced before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board and who usually represented applicants, a presiding judge, a workers’ compensation administrative law judge, and two members of the public outside the workers’ comp community.
