LA has been losing jobs and will continue to lose jobs in the entertainment industry if we don't fight back against outsourcing. This crisis has been going on for two decades and we're going to loose big time if we don't do something to wake up the political leadership on this issue. The silence is deafening. All the efforts to stop runaway production have been band aids while the profiteers host big events advertising how to take our jobs. Our leadership is aiding the outsourcing by failing to communicate with voters on these issues and cooperating with the out sourcing of jobs in Hollywood. Watching sadly as the instability of the industry here destroys families and communities and 'fear' rules the day as workers stay silent for 'fear' of being blacklisted for getting involved in the fight to Bring Hollywood Home. We can't have a strong city if 'silence' is imposed by our political institutions and only heavy handed lobbyists are allowed to engage our lawmakers on these issues.

The State Compensation Insurance Fund is well on its way to contract out California jobs, to be performed in California, so that two companies in the so-called "Right to Work" (for less) states of Louisiana and Texas can increase their profit margins by exploiting the people who will actually perform the work. Just as the Bring Hollywood

Home Foundation has been pro-active in exposing irresponsible governmental policies that lead to runaway film production at the expense of California workers, the California Association of Licensed Investigators -- of which I was formerly Chair of the Board -- is leading a crusade against this policy.
What SCIF is doing is reminiscent of how the LAPD did to contract out its pre-employment polygraph program to the sole bidder, a Virginia firm, that promptly sub-contracted the work to Los Angeles based polygraph examiners. The company agreed to protocols that absolutely violate American Polygraph Association (APA) standards of conduct and ethics, violating the legitimate interests of honest and decent applicants to the LAPD.

I am requesting that the Same Page Coalition organizations endorse this position and authorize contacts to legislators and other public officials to oppose this irresponsible program. Let me know ASAP if you AGREE or DISAGREE with taking this position. CALI's position:
Following is CALI's perspective on the issue.

On January 24, the State Compensation Insurance Fund [SCIF] announced its new program to manage investigation services used by various departments within SCIF by contracting with two companies-"HUB Enterprises" and "Veracity Research Company [VR] Investigations" that are based in Louisiana and Texas. In order to save money, this program will lead to investigations of workers compensation claims that fail to ferret out fraud and abuse. The burden of the costs of inappropriate and false claims paid by SCIF will be borne by employers and will not be available to employees. While the exact criteria of this program remain under wraps, the little information SCIF has provided confirms that:

v SCIF has reneged on its repeated commitment regarding a fundamental issue: that the chosen companies will provide oversight and management of investigations performed by licensed private investigators who are not their employees. At least one of the two chosen companies has employee investigators who will be performing the same investigations it is supposed to oversee on the part of outside licensed private investigators. This is a fundamental conflict of interest. The decision of SCIF to renege on this commitment calls into question the veracity of all SCIF statements about this new program. v The two chosen companies have the built-in incentive to drive down investigation costs in order to increase their own profits. The loss is to the quality of the investigations aimed at uncovering fraud and abuse. v SCIF pursued a Request for Proposal [RFP] process that did not follow state government bidding requirements, required proposals on an unreasonably short timeframe [several days], demanded confidentiality, and included arbitrary and unreasonable demands [thirty-five employees]. v Sensitive, personal information regarding employers and employees will be at substantial risk as they will be handled by companies that are based out-of-state. v The new program will be at the expense of California jobs. SCIF has rejected proposals submitted by California-based companies. The two chosen companies can hire investigators in-house to perform the investigations.
