BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

West Virginia bill would repeal contractor comp liability

WV capitol

Lawmakers in West Virginia introduced a bill that would repeal the state’s contractor workers compensation liability law.

H.B. 2327, introduced Friday, would repeal the current law,  enacted in 2009, which states that primary contractors are responsible for ensuring that their subcontractors are either self-insured or maintain workers comp coverage during the time services are rendered, and that the primary contractor is responsible for the payment of statutory benefits if the subcontractor is not covered.

The bill was referred to the House workforce development committee.
