Lawmakers pass workers’ comp legislation

first_imgLawmakers pass workers’ comp legislation June 15, 2003 Daniel Staesser Assistant Editor Regular News Lawmakers pass workers’ comp legislation Assistant EditorAfter regular session and the onslaught of testimony, rewrites, and amendments, and the eventual lack of resolve, special session SB 50-A put an end to the issue of workers’ compensation — for now — when it passed near adjournment on May 27.It is an end, however, reached by a means harmful to both Florida’s workers and their attorneys, despite the projected 12.35 percent reduction in premiums, according to critics of the bill.“I don’t think it was legislation that was well thought through,” said Rafael Gonzalez, immediate past chair of the Bar’s Workers’ Compensation Section.Gonzalez’s concern was shared by Sen. Skip Campbell, D-Tamarac, who recently resigned from the Senate Finance and Taxation Committee, of which he was chair, to protest the bill.The concerns are over the decreases in benefits for Florida’s workers. Injured workers seeking permanent total disability (PTD) benefits now bear a burden of establishing that they are not capable of sedentary employment, which involves the lifting of just a few pounds. The standards by which a PTD is measured makes the burden of proving such an injury even heavier. Unless the carrier or employer finds the employee is physically capable of engaging in sedentary employment within a 50-mile radius of the employee’s residence, the employee must have one of the following injuries:• Spinal cord injury involving severe paralysis of an arm, a leg, or the trunk.• Amputation of an arm, hand, foot, etc. with effective loss of that appendage.• Severe brain or closed head injury.• Second or third degree burns to at least 25 percent of the body.• Total or industrial blindness.The bill allows for one independent medical examination per accident rather than one per medical specialty, requiring the carrier to pay for only one. In addition, preexisting medical conditions or disabilities are excluded as payable injuries.Under the bill, benefits for PTD claims will cease at age 75 unless the employee is not eligible for Social Security benefits. The supplementary cost-of-living benefits, which drop from 5 percent to 3 percent, stop at age 62, excepting the same stipulation.Impairment benefits for permanent partial disability claims, percentages determined by the Florida Impairment Guide, have been reduced to about 25 percent of the worker’s average weekly wage, if that employee is able to earn the same wage or greater after the injury. The duration of the benefit would be changed from the current three weeks for each percent of determined impairment to the following schedule:• Two weeks for each percent of impairment from 1 to 10 percent.• Three weeks for each percent of impairment from 11 to 15 percent.• Four weeks for each percent of impairment from 16 to 20 percent.• Six weeks for each percent of impairment from 21 percent and higher.Not all benefits were cut by the bill, however, with funeral expenses increasing from $5,000 to $7,500 and death benefits for dependants increasing from $100,000 to $150,000.Another thing that the bill did was raise medical fee reimbursements to 110 percent of Medicare and 140 percent of Medicare for surgical procedures.“That’s one good thing that needed to be addressed, and it was,” said Gonzalez. However, he had reservations in other areas of the bill, specifically attorneys’ fees, which, as an alternative to the contingency fee schedule, may be capped, per the determination of a judge of compensation claims, at $1,500 per lifetime of the claim, based on a maximum hourly rate of $150 per hour.“If you are a working injured worker and there are no benefits due to you and someone denies you an MRI, or whatever the medical issue may be, I think that you are going to have a hard time finding an attorney to work 40 or 50 hours for no more than $1,500,” said Gonzalez.Other issues addressed by the bill include compliance and procedural changes in a system riddled with fraud. Employers that fail to pay incur stop-work order penalties, which unless paid makes them ineligible for an exemption from coverage. Carriers are required to provide an annual report regarding losses and recoveries, and the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Fraud and the Division of Workers’ Compensation are to provide annual reports regarding compliance and enforcement activities.Despite efforts in these areas and the estimated reduction in premiums, Gonzalez has his doubts and remembers the last major changes to workers’ comp legislation in 1993, stemming from the effects of legislation from 1989 and 1990.“It just hadn’t been enough time to see the changes,” said Gonzalez. “It just doesn’t happen that way. It will take a while to sort of cleanse away older claims. I think in a year’s time they might come back and say, ‘Look we’ve been paying the same amount.’“We have yet to hear of any carrier come out and publicly say they are going to reduce premiums,” said Gonzalez. “There is no guarantee that will happen. There is nothing in this bill to say that the carrier must lower premiums.”With no guarantees, justifying considerable reductions in both workers’ benefits and attorneys’ fees becomes a tough task, making it obvious why the issue was so hotly debated during regular session and put on Gov. Jeb Bush’s priority list for special session.“I have been talking to people on the phone who have called and who weren’t practitioners of workers’ comp and could not believe what was going on,” said Gonzalez, who realizes the impact this legislation will have on all Floridians.“I say it out loud, and still just can’t believe it.”last_img read more

Some of you are doing very well. Some are doing okay. But capturing this group isn’t simple, and marketers are often left scratching their heads.So you go to conferences, read all the articles, and listen to people talk about how you should talk to this group or what they like to hear from brands. That’s all well and good, but there’s a foundation that’s missing: how to talk to Millennials the right way.Here are the two things that may be holding you back:1.

Syracuse offense gets off to strong start but struggles late; Orange snaps 7-game losing streak to Pitt

first_img Published on October 7, 2012 at 11:57 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] This time, the Syracuse offense clicked from the start. The Orange rolled down the field on its first drive, mixing four rushes and four passing plays to score the game’s first touchdown.“We were ready to go. We’ve had two weeks to prepare for this and we were just ready to go,” quarterback Ryan Nassib said. “We were anxious to get out there and start playing.”The eight-play, 70-yard drive was an impressive start as Nassib went 4-for-4 for 51 yards, and running back Adonis Ameen-Moore punched it across the goal line from 1 yard out. It was a stark contrast to SU’s first four games when it struggled to find its rhythm in the first half. The uncharacteristic fast start proved to be enough offense for SU in its 14-13 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night, thanks to a stellar performance by the defense.Running back Jerome Smith took two straight carries 14 yards to get the offense going on the drive. Smith nodded his head as he walked confidently back to the huddle after his second carry, feeding off the energy generated by a three-and-out forced by the defense to open the game.Then Nassib went to work, moving SU to the 18 yard line with three completions. Three plays later, Ameen-Moore capped it with his first career touchdown.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think when you come off a bye week, you want to go out early and have some success,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “Now, we didn’t maintain it during that game offensively. But to come out early and do that, I would have expected more.”But as Marrone said, the SU offense sputtered for the remainder of the game. The team marched inside the 10 in the second quarter, but ended in disappointment when Nassib’s pass for Marcus Sales in the end zone was picked off.Nassib said the team was too hyped up throughout the game and never found its focus. And Marrone said the unit is still searching for consistency.“You work on a bye week, you work on those things, you get the ball, you do a nice job and then bam, you want to get it again and keep going,” Marrone said. “We have a lot of work to do.”Syracuse ends Pittsburgh’s streak of dominanceJustin Pugh and the rest of the Syracuse seniors had yet to defeat Pittsburgh in their careers heading into Friday night’s matchup. They were part of a seven-game losing streak to the Panthers dating back to 2005.The Orange ended that streak with its victory over Pitt in the team’s Big East opener at the Carrier Dome.“It’s amazing. I looked back. We haven’t beaten them in eight years,” Pugh said. “So to go out there and beat that team and win it in like, a gritty way that we did, we kind of put the game on the offense’s hands and we feel good to come out and get that win.”The win also ended a five-game losing streak in the Big East. It was a much-needed victory for a team that appeared to be on its way to another losing season after a 1-3 start.Nassib said he hadn’t thought about the building pressure on the team to earn its first conference and Football Bowl Subdivision win since it defeated West Virginia on a Friday night last October.His focus was on the Panthers.“The only thing I wanted to do was come in today and beat Pitt,” Nassib said. “That was one of my personal goals this year and I’m glad I achieved it.”Broyld watches from the sidelinesAfter seeing time in each of Syracuse’s first four games, freshman running back Ashton Broyld wasn’t in the team’s plans on Friday night.“Our philosophy is that we play the best players that we feel give us the best chance to win,” Marrone said. “And that’s not just only Ashton Broyld, that’s a lot of other players on this team too.”The freshman remained on the sidelines for the duration of the Orange’s victory over Pittsburgh. Though he arrived as a talented playmaker after a year at Milford Academy, Broyld is still trying to carve out his role with SU in his first season.He was used as a receiver against Northwestern, making four catches for 28 yards. Against Stony Brook, he formed part of an efficient three-player rushing attack and finished with 61 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. But Broyld was used sparingly against Minnesota and lost a fumble in the red zone. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
