A Victory in Workers’ Compensation

On November 23, the 73 page Order from Judge Karen Gievers was released regarding workers’ compensation rates.

It finds that NCCI violated the Sunshine Law, and it enjoins the workers’ compensation premium rate increase from going into effect on December 1st.

Congratulations to plaintiff Jim Fee and his legal team, as well as everyone else who participated and assisted in this case.

Special thanks also to FJA Workers’ Compensation Section Chair, Richard Chait, for his leadership in our FJA efforts to create a workers’ compensation system that works for everyone, especially injured workers. The lawsuit in which this order was entered is just one part of the overall effort in this cause.
