Workers Compensation Insights

A Busy August in Sacramento. The next 21 days will be critical for California. The Legislature has returned from its COVID-19 extended Summer Recess with an agenda that will be difficult to complete by the end of the month. The new scrutiny of workplace cases of COVID-19 will give greater emphasis to creating a presumption of compensability for workers’ compensation claims and setting new standards for workplace safety. There will be opposition to any and all of these measures from all segments of the community. Under normal circumstances that is usually a sign of reasonable legislation.

But these are not normal circumstances. While this is the last month of the legislative session in Sacramento, it is the beginning of what promises to be a long and contentious struggle throughout this Nation and certainly in California over a broad spectrum of issues. How California raises and expends almost incomprehensible sums of money ($100 billion) to aid in the recovery and, potentially, extend expiring unemployment and sick leave benefits to those living here remains to be seen, but is definitely in the works.

The results of the November election, both in terms of who will occupy the White House and the various consequential measures that will appear on California’s General Election ballot, figure prominently in California’s recovery plans. Those in positions of power – regardless of elected status – will have much to say on how this may come together before year’s end. With that power comes responsibility for the lives and well-being of millions who reside in this State.

Not everyone in power has risen to the occasion. But there is time to change that before factions again return to the trenches. After all, it is only August.
