LABOR AND INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS Workers\u27 Compensation: Provide for Premium Discount to Employers Who Maintain a Drug-free Workplace and Revise Other Aspects of the System

By Georgia State University Law Review

Abstract

HB 677 allows administrative law judges to serve on the State Board of Workers\u27 Compensation to review cases on appeal, provides for the issuance of experience modification worksheets to the insured, and establishes requirements to solicit membership in a workers\u27 compensation self-insurance fund. HB 678 exempts independent contract carriers for printed materials from the classification of employment for workers\u27 compensation purposes. HB 811 provides for a premium discount on workers\u27 compensation insurance if the employer maintains a drug-free workplace program. SB 240 requires notice of seventy-five days by certified mail, return receipt requested for cancellation or nonrenewal or workers\u27 compensation systems, and exempts workers\u27 compensation policies from limits on insurance policies when paid by the Georgia Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association. hmt
