Pennsylvania Employers Seek to Gut the Workers' Compensation Act Despite Record-Low Premiums for Workers' Comp Policies

I recently wrote about Pennsylvania House Bill 1800, which is designed to gut the Pennsylvania workers' compensation system by taking away medical decision-making from medical professionals and handing the job to workers’ comp insurance adjusters, who may have a teen tiny conflict of interest when they decide whether to let injured workers get medical treatment.  Word about this bill comes just as workers' compensation premiums costs have fallen for Pennsylvania employers for the fifth straight year. 

In other words, while employers are trying to dramatically reduce benefits to injured workers and their families, they're paying the lowest premiums they've had to pay in decades.  These guys have no shame.
