Mississippi Gov. Signs Workers’ Comp Legislation


Jackson, MS (WorkersCompensation.com) - Governor Phil Bryant recently signed into law four components of his Mississippi Works agenda, including Senate Bill 2576, a measure that revises Mississippi's worker compensation regulations.

“Today is a great day for Mississippi and our ongoing effort to make this the most job-friendly state in the nation,” Gov. Bryant said. “The cooperation of private sector leaders and Mississippi's elected officials is producing great opportunities for this state, including the legislation signed today.”

Bryant said that SB 2576 makes important restorations to a fair and impartial worker compensation system.

The bill provides that the worker compensation system does not favor an employer over an employee or vice versa. It also establishes guidelines for drug and alcohol testing in the case of a workplace injury and clarifies attorney payments.
