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”.

Connecticut lawmakers seek to expand PTSD law


Lawmakers in Connecticut will consider amending its workers compensation law permitting post-traumatic stress disorder as a compensable injury to all workers.

S.B. 91, filed Thursday, would amend the state’s law on benefits for police officers, parole officers or firefighters suffering post-traumatic stress disorder after a “qualifying event,” which includes witnessing death and grave injuries, to include “all employees covered by workers compensation law.”

The bill was referred to the Committee on Labor and Public Employees.
