Citizens Pushing Back Against Attack on Work Comp System

Citizens are waking up to the potential legislative attack on the Work Comp System: Workers' Compensation Bill an Attack on Our Rights. This editorial is from the Wausau Daily Herald-right in the backyard of one of the legislators (Spiros) who has proposed this direct legislative attack. We previously discussed the proposed legislation in a prior post: Legislative Alert: Worker's Compensation Destruction Bill?

In Wisconsin, the stabilizing force-the Worker's Compensation Advisory Council (WCAC)-is set to produce its agreed-upon bill in the upcoming weeks. The Council is a group of labor and management that effectively "collective bargain" (yes, that's not a bad phrase !) for biennial changes and common sense improvements to the system.The Council bill was unanimously agreed to by members of labor and management-which includes the WI Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC).

In direct contrast, the opposing bill (also known as the work comp destruction bill) was not considered by the Council. It is a direct legislative attack on the work comp system. The non-WCAC bill would tear down the whole system by exponentially increasing litigation, hindering access to medical care and recovery, and potentially creating a slippery slope to unlimited jury awards.

As opposed to the work comp destruction bill, the WCAC bill will do what it always does-improve on the Worker's Compensation Act. Citizens are becoming aware.
