CO Surveillance Bill Postponed Indefinitely

                               Denver, CO (CompNewsNetwork) - The Colorado Senate Committee on Judiciary killed HB1012, sponsored by Rep. Sal Pace, D-Pueblo, more than a month after hearing testimony on it. It failed on a 4-3 vote. The bill that would have prohibited an insurer or employer from conducting surveillance of an employee who has submitted a workers' compensation claim.

HB 1012 would have limited video surveillance to only when the insurer or employer has a reasonable basis to suspect that the employee has committed fraud or made a material misstatement concerning the claim; and would have required the insurer or employer to provide all materials collected during the surveillance to the injured worker and to destroy all materials collected during the surveillance unless the materials are reasonably necessary to resolve an ongoing claim of fraud within five years, unless the materials were reasonably necessary to resolve an ongoing claim of fraud.
