Jammers Groundscapes, a landscaping company operating out of Pflugerville, Texas, just north of Austin, entered a plea of guilty in defrauding its workers’ compensation carrier by omitting the payroll from a non-covered ancillary business.  The omission was Jammers’ attempt to secure lower workers’ compensation premiums, which are calculated, in part, on an employer’s payroll.  The scam succeeded for six years until the carrier’s internal investigation uncovered it.  A Travis County District Court ordered Jammers to reimburse its carrier to the tune of $400,000.00.
