Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features NCCI’s recent release of its 2020 Workers’ Comp Legislative Session Preview brief and webinar recording, which summarize 2019 legislative trends and hot topics, and preview activity for 2020.
NCCI noted that it tracked almost 700 state and federal workers’ comp-related bills and monitored almost 280 related regulations in 2019, and is already monitoring more than 500 bills in 2020. That figure is expected to increase as state legislative sessions progress. Trends and hot topics were noted to look very similar to 2019, and include first responder legislation; medical marijuana reimbursement; single-payer health insurance implementations or studies; and independent contracting and the gig economy.
