The General Assembly has taken action on several Workers' Compensation bills in this year's session. Twenty-five bills dealing with Workers' Compensation matters were introduced. The bill calling for Commission decisions to be emailed will become law while another piece of proposed legislation -- that would expand punishment for employers who retaliate against workers who file workers' compensation claims -- has been referred for study. Many other bills probably won't make it out of this year's session.
There are several bills dealing with workers' compensation matters in the General Assembly this year. A bill that would allow commission decisions to be emailed and a bill that would expand punishment for employers who retaliate against workers who file workers' compensation claims are making the rounds in Annapolis.
