Report urges federal involvement in state workers' comp laws

The U.S. Department of Labor released a report earlier this month on the workers' compensation system. Their recommendation is for further exploration into enacting federal oversight and federal minimum benefits for workers' compensation. Since workers' compensation is currently regulated at the state level, this could change circumstances significantly for some injured workers.

New workers' comp laws to reduce treatment delays and fight fraud

Two newly-signed laws will help to improve California workers' compensation, and build upon reform efforts that began in 2012. These new laws, signed by Governor Jerry Brown on October 2, concentrate on cracking down on fraud by health care professionals and reducing the delays applicants experience in obtaining medical evaluations.
