A Chamber of Commerce-opposed “job killer” bill that severely undercuts the workers’ compensation reform deal agreed to by labor unions and employers in 2012 and would result in dramatic cost increases to California employers will be heard in the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee on January 15.
SB 626 (Beall; D-San Jose) will result in employers paying nearly $1 billion in benefit increases to injured workers without an expectation that the increases will be fully offset by system savings
SB 626 will be heard in the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee on January 15. Contact your senator and urge him/her to oppose SB 626.
