California uses a statute in our Unemployment Insurance Code (section 1735)
to pierce the corporate veil.  According to the attorney in my office who is
familiar with this area, our efforts have been very effective and

Subject: [wiaattorneys] Personal Liability for Payment of UI Taxes

Indiana has a statute attaching personal liability to payment of UI
contributions, penalties, and training assessments under our Incumbent
Worker program.  We have not previously used this in our collections efforts
because it seems to run counter to courts' reluctance under common law to
"pierce the corporate veil" and hold officers and agents of a corporation
liable.   Can anyone offer me any guidance on this?
