Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

OAKLAND, CA – California’s Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) and its Commission on Health and Safety and Workers' Compensation have announced that the Senate Rules Committee has appointed Mona Garfias to the Commission as an employer representative.

Since 1998, Garfias has been Director of Claims for DMS Facility Services, a large unionized employer in the janitorial industry with over 1800 employees. She started her career in the insurance industry 27 years ago and held various workers' compensation claims positions on both the insurance carrier and insurance brokerage side.

Garfias was instrumental in implementing the Ross Pike Memorial Workers' Compensation Carve-Out & Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program, and continues to be involved on a daily basis.

The position does not require Senate confirmation, and the term lasts till the end of 2020.

The Commission consists of eight members, four representing employers and four from organized labor. The Governor appoints four Commissioners, and the Speaker of the Assembly and the Senate Rules Committee each appoint two members.

CHSWC, created by the workers' compensation reform legislation of 1993, is charged with examining the health and safety and workers' compensation systems in California and recommending administrative or legislative modifications to improve its operations.

Information about CHSWC is available at www.dir.ca.gov/chswc.
