Simplifying the calculation of workers’ compensation benefits

The House Labor Committee will hear SB 5510 on Tuesday, March 24, at 1:30 pm. AWC supports this bill, which requires the Department of Labor & Industries to convene a workgroup to develop recommendations to improve the calculation of wages under the workers’ compensation program. The workgroup must focus on improving the accuracy, simplicity, fairness, and consistency in calculating wage benefits and issue a final report to the Legislature by February 1, 2016.
