A former executive at a Southern California staffing firm announced this week that workers’ compensation fraud charges against him and others have been dropped.
Lou Perez and others at Checkmate Staffing Inc. were arrested in October 2006 on suspicion of committing almost $39.3 million in workers’ compensation fraud.
The charges were dropped last year, according to the announcement this week. The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office confirmed the case was dismissed.
According to Perez’s announcement Checkmate was forced to sell after the charges. However, Perez became a consultant for other staffing companies and eventually built a firm called BaronHR.
