Missouri Department of Labor & Industrial Relations, Division of Workers’ Compensation filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court an emergency motion to compel Katy Industries’ affiliated Debtor Continental Commercial Products to comply with the laws of the State of Missouri related to workers’ compensation, or, in the alternative, for an order dismissing this case.
The motion explains, “In order for Continental to continue to operate lawfully in Missouri, the Debtor must abide by Missouri law and administer and pay any and all benefits that are deemed compensable to injured employees either based upon a reported injury or the filing of a Claim for Compensation with the Department….All self-insured employers must retain or hire a licensed by the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration or a service company that is certified by the Division. The Department has been previously informed that Continental and its TPA intend to terminate their relationship. Continental has not provided the Department with a written agreement that purportedly extends the administrator services Continental currently has with its TPA.”
In addition, “Wherefore, the Department prays this Court enter an order compelling Continental to do the following as required by Missouri law, or, alternatively dismissing this bankruptcy case for cause pursuant to 11 U.S.C. section 1112.” The Missouri Department of Labor & Industrial Relations also sought shortened consideration of this emergency motion.
