Unlicensed Contactor Sentenced for Failing to Carry Workers’ Comp Insurance A CSLB investigation

MONTEREY COUNTY – On June 11, 2021, Marco Polo DeLaRosa Zesati, 37, of Castroville was sentenced to 40 days in county jail, three years court probation, and a $1,000 fine.  Zesati, owner of “World Class Properties, LLC,” pled no contest to contracting without a license and failing to secure payment of workers’ compensation insurance.

The California Contractor State Licensing Board (CSLB) opened an investigation of Zesati in March 2018. CSLB investigators observed four workers painting and plastering a property owned by Zesati. Zesati was acting in the capacity of a general B contractor by undertaking a project of owner builder without the required contractor license, a violation of Business and Professions Code section 7028(a).

Zesati also used the labor of at least four people without providing workers’ compensation insurance, a violation of Labor Code section 3700.5. The case was referred to the District Attorney’s Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit.

“Workers’ compensation insurance is important and required because employees need to be protected should they be injured on the job,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “CSLB investigators work year-round to identify those contractors who fail to purchase this insurance for their employees, therefore putting employees at risk.”
