Workers' Compensation


SB 1185 (Long/Toure): Prohibits an employer from terminating the group health insurance of any employee because the employee has filed a workers' compensation claim, hired an attorney for representation regarding a claim, instituted any proceeding under the workers' compensation act, or testified or is planning to testify in any workers' compensation proceeding which relates to the employee's past or present employment. The bill allows award of attorney's fees to the prevailing party when a medical care provider has brought a claim in the Workers' Compensation Court. Also, employers are required to use a prescribed form for enrollment of employees in a certified workplace medical plan. The bill allows a child who is receiving education at home to receive income benefits for death until the age of 23.
