In the Matter of Statutory Penalties for Belated Enrollment of 100 Class Me

Forced CalPERS into settlement negotiations to resolve a penalty assessment. CalPERS assessed a penalty against a public agency for its failure to timely enroll a group of agency temporary workers in CalPERS. The penalty required the public agency to pay the employer and employee arrears on a retroactive basis. At the conclusion of a 3 week hearing, and before the judge issued a final ruling, the parties negotiated a global settlement, which included a provision that the workers pay a portion of the employee contribution.
