2016 Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour Kicks Off in Tampa

June 9, 2016

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today kicked off the 2016 Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour in Tampa, Fla.  The tour is presented by several business associations across a myriad of industries to provide communities an opportunity to discuss and share the implications of the workers’ compensation system on employers and employees, with the hope of finding a solution that allows for a balanced system of adequate medical and wage benefits for injured employees at an affordable cost to employers.  

“Today’s kick off event was extremely successful in bringing together Florida’s business community to jumpstart an important conversation on workers’ compensation,” said AIF President & CEO Tom Feeney.  “We also thank Senator Jeff Brandes and Representative Amanda Murphy for being a part of this critical discussion.  It is imperative that we provide our state’s leaders with the resources they need to stabilize the successful workers’ compensation system that was created from the 2003 reforms.  We look forward to the upcoming stops in Miami and Jacksonville, where we will continue to learn from the community how we can balance the needs of injured workers and businesses, so that we can build upon our economic success and grow jobs across Florida.”

“NFIB is pleased to be a part of the Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour,” said Tim Nungesser, legislative director of National Federation of Independent Business.  “We too are committed to keeping Florida’s workers’ compensations laws working for our families and businesses across the Sunshine State.  We look forward to the continued discussions on how we can deliver meaningful solutions to our elected officials so that we can preserve the workers’ compensation system that works here in Florida.  NFIB and AIF will work together to deliver rate stability to Florida’s small businesses.”
