I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
The first thing that you will want to do is to contact the local office of the CA Department of Labor, and tell them that you have the claim, that the employer removed the posters so no employee can see them and ask them to investigate the violations of CA employment law.
Secondly, as your employer is refusing to file the Notice of First Claim with their carrier, and you can not locate the responsible carrier on the website you mentioned, call the following agency to assist you in locating the present insurance carrier for your employer. While they charge some a fee, there is no charge you as an injured worker for their services:
WCIRB Customer Service
Tel: 888.CA.WCIRB(NNN) NNN-NNNN
Fax:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>E-mail: [email protected]
Hours: Monday-Friday, 7:30AM-5:00PM (Pacific Standard Time)
Finally, as an injured employee you have a legal right to file a claim and be compensated for your injury. You should consider retaining a local workers' compensation attorney. They only charge a fee if they collect a permanent disability award for you---you pay them noting in advance, and they typically only charge 12% of the amount you collect as your lump sum award at the end of your case---so they can help at no out of pocket cost to you.
