Florida Workers’ Comp Reform Battle Far From Over

Several bills addressing changes to Florida’s workers’ compensation system were filed this legislative session in response to court decisions from the state’s high court in 2016, but it remains to be seen which, if any, will make it through.

So far, the front-runners to address decisions by the Florida Supreme Court that found aspects of the Florida Workers’ Comp Act unconstitutional, and subsequently led to 14.5 percent rate hikes, are two bills – House Bill 7085 and Senate Bill 1582 – that seek to reform the state’s workers’ comp system.
