The Workers' Compensation Action Network (WCAN) today applauded the administration of Governor Jerry Brown for achieving a key milestone toward implementation of Senate Bill 863, a comprehensive legislative reform to California's $16 billion workers' compensation system.
The Workers' Compensation Action Network (WCAN) is a statewide, broad-based coalition representing California employers, insurers and brokers/agents on issues relating to the state's workers' compensation system.
A new survey released today shows that nearly 80% of voters support the cost-cutting reforms sponsored by Governor Schwarzenegger and supported by the Workers' Compensation Action Network, and are poised to enact a ballot measure in November containing these reforms if legislators refuse to pass them.
California voters recognize that our state's workers' compensation system is in a shambles and must be rescued," said Allan Zaremberg, president of the California Chamber of Commerce and co-chair of the Workers' Compensation Action Network, a coalition of public and private employers working to enact cost-savings reform.
California employers -- large and small, public and private -- are joining together to form the Workers' Compensation Action Network
(WCAN), a grassroots effort to urge quick action by the California Legislature to overhaul the state's costly and dysfunctional workers' compensation system.
