Florida Passes Workers’ Comp Reform
Florida state legislators have passed a bill that will keep workers’ compensation rates low for employers. The Florida Supreme Court made a ruling in October that eliminated the attorneys’ fees cap that was already in place.
With the passing of this new bill, that cap is reinstated, rolling back a 6.9% increase in workers’ comp rates that occurred in the interim. Now employers across the state are expected to save $172 million in policy premiums.
