The Limousine Associations of New Jersey (LANJ) met re-cently with the Compensation Rating & Inspection Bureau (CRIB) to further discuss the elimination of workers? com-pensation on gratuities. Also discussed was the establishment of limousines operators? own classification, separate from taxicabs and trucks.
As a result of the meeting, the CRIB determined it needed more time to conduct a wider sample of audits in order to properly determine the figures.
However, it was generally agreed that by January 1, 2003, the limouine industry will no longer pay workers? compensa-tion on gratutities and also have its own classification.
With workers? compensation coverage, limousine operators have been classified along with taxicabs and truck drivers. Be-cause of higher accident rates, taxicabs and truck drivers pay higher rates.
