Description

Workers' compensation insurance; use of experience rating; loss limitation for not-at-fault motor vehicle accidents. Directs the State Corporation Commission (SCC) to adopt regulations that establish standards for determining a loss limitation to be included in the calculation of workers' compensation insurance experience modifications when a motor vehicle accident is a not-at-fault motor vehicle accident. The bill requires the SCC to establish how any loss remaining after such deduction of the loss limitation should be distributed among workers' compensation classifications. The SCC is also required to ensure that the amount, if any, by which an employer's experience rating would otherwise be modified as the result of a motor vehicle accident in which an employee is injured or killed shall be reduced if the accident was a not-at-fault motor vehicle accident.
