Bill Summary

The bill removes the state's ability to elect self-insurance as a means of maintaining the state employee workers' compensation account, while leaving intact the state's ability to procure commercial workers' compensation insurance to maintain the account.

The bill prohibits the state, when communicating with or reaching an agreement with a state employee about a workers' compensation claim, from suggesting or requiring that the state employee resign from state employment or refrain from seeking or obtaining employment with the state in the future or that any other restrictions be placed on the state employee's ability to work for the state and voids any provision of a contract related to such a claim that imposes such a restriction.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
