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”.

Wisconsin comp law amendments signed by governor


Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers on Friday signed into law various amendments to the state’s workers compensation law.  

Acting on a recommendation from the Workers Compensation Advisory Council, the governor approved Assembly Bill 1073, which makes several changes to the state’s workers comp system.

The law increases the amount of large Uninsured Employer Fund claims requiring reimbursement from workers comp insurers from $1 million to $2 million; it allows lump sum payments for permanent partial disability for unaccrued compensation to be paid in advance voluntarily in some undisputed claims; and it increases the permanent partial disability weekly rate by $8.

It makes other minor revisions to existing law, such as replacing certain gendered references with gender-neutral language.
