State Law Summaries Updated for All 51 Jurisdictions in IRMI Workers Comp

This release of IRMI Workers Comp contains updated state law summaries for all 51 jurisdictions to reflect the changes made by the 2018 legislative sessions. State legislative sessions were quite active in 2018. Some of the common legislative initiatives included defining the parameters of attorney fees, refining injuries not covered, and expanding benefits for first responders. A new legislative trend to note involves determining the employment status of marketplace contractors. These are usually defined as individuals who use a third-party electronic platform to contact consumers to deliver their services (e.g., Uber, Handy, and Lyft). States in 2018 implementing laws on this issue include Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The states have been consistent in their approach to marketplace contractors, considering them to be independent contractors rather than employees of the electronic platform when certain conditions are met.

Topics for which the summary charts have been updated in this supplement to reflect the 2018 state legislative sessions include the following.
