Developments In State WC Systems

                               Washington, DC (CompNewsNetwork) - On Wednesday, November 17, the Workforce Protections Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee will examine state workers' compensations systems. Workers' compensation traditionally provides financial assistance and job training to workers injured on the job and aid to the surviving family of a worker killed on the job. 

These systems have undergone numerous changes in the past decade as many states have begun strictly limiting workers' compensation benefits – changes that may be stressing the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. Additionally, the American Medical Association's (AMA) guide to assessing injured workers has undergone significant changes in its latest edition, which has made consequential changes to injured workers' evaluation procedure.

Additional witnesses TBA.
