Legislation aimed at reforming the state’s workers’ compensation system has run into stumbling blocks in the Senate. Under the proposal, employers would compensate employees for work-related injuries, but would not be responsible for injuries suffered by employees who are hurt while engaged in off-the-job activities. Supporters say the high amount of claims against the system is one of the main contributors to employers leaving the state. Opponents say the current law is fine and does not need to be changed. It’s unclear whether the legislation will be brought up again in the remaining weeks of the session.
