Fraud Training Requirement
California imposed a regulation, at Subchapter 9, Article 2, starting at Section 2698.30 et seq., called the “Special Investigation Unit Regulations.” If you are an employee of an insurer who has any business in California and anything to do with claims or underwriting, an independent adjuster or adjusting firm, a managing general agent, or an appointed agent of any insurer doing business in California and were not trained about insurance fraud recognition by the end of September 2005 you and the insurer are in violation of the California Code of Regulations. The regulations require each insurer to train you annually and to train all new hires within 90 days of hire.
