Western Employers Insurance Company (WEIC) was a New York-domiciled insurer known as Letherby Insurance Company and was re-domesticated to California in the late 1970's. The company was licensed in 38 states and wrote primarily Workers' Compensation and Multi-Peril insurance. After four years of being in run-off liquidation, WEIC determined it could no longer continue the run-off without the assistance of the California Department of Insurance.

Western Employers Insurance Company of America (WEICA) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of WEIC. WEICA was licensed in eight states, with its principal place of business located in Fullerton, California. The company wrote only Workers' Compensation insurance. WEICA was included in WEIC's run-off process.
