Today the Kansas Senate will debate Senate Bill 73 on the floor. SB 73 proposes to shift worker’s compensation from the current system to a system that would favor the employer over injured workers all across Kansas.
SB 73 seeks to require physicians to use the sixth edition of the American Medical Association Guides for Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, an edition that have been rejected by across the country as being too employer biased. It also proposes to shorten the amount of time from 20 days to 10 days that employees have to give notice to the former employer of the accident.
The workers compensation system should not be tilted to benefit one side over the other, keep the system fair and reject SB 73. Injured Kansas workers shouldn’t be left out in the cold.
