Workers Compensation Action Network
Workers Compensation Action Network (WCAN) produced another great graphic on the Workers Comp situation in California. Click here for the chart. Why do I try to point out most of the happenings on WC in CA?

SB 863 may shorten the continuation on some of the increases.
