FAYETTE COUNTY EMPLOYER VIOLATES WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION ACT

 FAYETTE COUNTY EMPLOYER VIOLATES WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION ACT
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A Fayette County employer has pleaded guilty to 291 counts of failure to insure employees against job-related injury, illness or death.
 Beverly J. Turner of Markleysburg, Pa., trading as Spear Convalescent Home, entered the guilty plea on Nov. 8 in Fayette County Common Pleas Court. She was sentenced to 10 years probation, fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $1,933 restitution to an injured worker.
 Pennsylvania's Workmen's Compensation Act requires employers to insure their workers for work-related injuries.
 The infractions occurred between Dec. 15, 1989, and Oct. 1, 1990. During that time, the company employed 44 people.
 Spear Convalescent Home is no longer in business.
 A routine investigation by the Bureau of Workers' Compensation revealed that the company did not have the required coverage.
