The State Labor and Industrial Relations Commission is taking part in a series of seminars, throughout the state, to make Missouri employers aware of the changes to workers’ compensation laws and what the changes mean for businesses. The panel is made up of three commissioners: one representing employers, another representing employees, and a third representing the public. Alice Bartlett, the Commission’s Employer Representative, she says employers have been attending these seminars, asking a lot of questions. Bartlett points out that even with the new workers’ comp law, cases will still be decided by the courts before they end up being reviewed by the Commission. That means it could be a couple of years before the full impact of the changes is known.
