North Carolina State Employees Demand Participation In Workers' Comp Study

December 20, 2012

When workers are injured on the job, medical bills and other expenses can quickly get out of hand. This is where Raleigh Workers’ Compensation benefits come into play. Employers are required to carry insurance that will pay these benefits in the event a worker is hurt on the job. With budgetary cuts occurring within the state’s structure though, many government employees are becoming concerned about the quality and availability of these benefits if they are injured while at work.

WRAL News stated a study is currently in the works to evaluate the state’s workers’ compensation plan in detail and will take into account factors such as personnel protection, career status, and longevity pay.

State government workers are demanding that they not only be a part of the study, but are also calling for public hearings on the topic of workers’ compensation benefits for state employees, claiming they want their voices to be heard before any dramatic changes to the system are made. The concern is not unwarranted either, as North Carolina has some of the lowest rates of unionization and collective bargaining powers in the nation.
