ASSEMBLY INSURANCE COMMITTEE TO VOTE ON
DISABILITY BENEFITS BIAS BAN,
PERMANENT DISABILITY COMPENSATION;
Senate Rules Committee to Hear DWC Chief Nomination
 
On Wednesday morning, June 25, the Assembly Insurance Committee will vote on
Sen. Carole Migden’s SB 1115 to ban race, gender and age discrimination in
awarding disability compensation to workers injured on the job, and on Sen. Don
Perata’s SB 1717, to restore compensation to permanently disabled workers.
 
On Wednesday afternoon, the Senate Rules Committee will consider the
nomination of Carrie Nevans as Administrative Director of the Division of
Workers Compensation. Injured workers and their advocates have expressed
concerns that Ms. Nevans has not restored compensation to permanently disabled
workers. The prior administrative director made deep cuts to permanent disability
compensation not based on the law or any empirical studies.
