Summary of RII Plastering – Decision after reconsideration

The board held that when the amount of a penalty is challenged pursuant to Labor Code section 6600 the division must provide evidence in support of its proposed penalty. If the division establishes a violation of a citation but does not offer evidence supporting its proposed penalty it is appropriate that the employer be granted the maximum credits and adjustments provided under the penalty setting regulations such that the minimum penalty provided under the regulations for the established violations is assessed.
