Description

Workers' compensation; employer to notify employee of intent. Requires an employer whose employee has filed a claim under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act to advise the employee whether the employer intends to accept or deny the claim or is unable to make such a determination because it lacks sufficient information from the employee or a third party. If the employer is unable to make such a determination because it lacks sufficient information from the employee or a third party, the employer shall so state and identify the needed additional information. If the employer intends to deny the claim, it shall provide the reasons. Read the Bill »

Comments

Ronald N Quasebarth writes:

This is the kind of innocent seeming bill that just loads more red tape on employers. If it was limited to larger employers maybe 200 employees or more it might make more practical sense.

Another Anti biz bill
