Political Roundup: Workers' compensation
The Michigan legislature has passed a bill that would make major changes to the state’s workers' compensation law.
Under the new bill, insurance companies can reduce the amount of compensation to an injured worker based on how much that worker could make at another job while injured. That’s regardless of whether that job is even available.
It’s now headed to Governor Rick Snyder for his signature.
Michigan Radio's Jennifer White talks with Susan Demas, political analyst for Michigan Information and Research Service, and Ken Sikkema, former Senate Majority Leader and senior policy fellow at Public Sector Consultants.
