Workers' Comp Update: Insurance War Drags On
Things have recently been fairly quiet on the front lines of the Workers’ Compensation war. It is pretty much trench warfare at this point.
Under Governor Engler, it has been impossible to pass any legislation to improve the workers’ compensation climate, although Governor Engler is unwilling to make further moves to gut workers’ rights because he is getting close to another election.
Of course, the Governor’s henchmen on the Workers’ Compensation Appellate Commission have continued their dirty work, trying to judicially gut workers’ rights. Their attempts have been rebuffed by the Michigan Supreme Court, in large part. Thus, things remain quiet on the legislative and judicial fronts.
