S.F. No. 2378 - Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council Recommendations
Author: Senator Paul J. Utke
Prepared By: Carlon D. Fontaine, Senate Counsel (651/296-4395)
Date: April 3, 2019


Section 1.  Filing and review.  Provides that the Department of Labor and Industry is not required to approve entry of a new employer into the Union Construction Workers’ Compensation Program (UCWCP), which is a program for a group of employers and unions who have bargained for certain obligations and procedures relating to workers’ compensation. Under the bill proposal, the employer need only notify the department within 30 days of joining or leaving the UCWCP. Requires the UCWCP to submit claim-specific dispute resolution data, rather than aggregate group data, to the department.

Section 2.  Time limitation.  Requires insurers and self-insured employers to report whether a claim is covered by the UCWCP at the same time that they submit a first report of injury to the Department of Labor and Industry.
