2016 Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour Stops in Miami

June 29, 2016
Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today held the second of its three-part 2016 Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour in Miami, Fla.  The town hall tour, which began in Tampa and stops next in Jacksonville, is presented by several business associations across a myriad of industries to give communities the opportunity to discuss and share the implications of the workers’ compensation system on employers and employees.  Through the town hall tour, the Helping Florida Work coalition intends to help find 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 town hall here in Miami gave the South Florida business community the opportunity to come together to discuss our state’s workers’ compensation system and how the recent changes to the system will harm job growth and economic success that Florida businesses and families cannot afford,” said AIF President & CEO Tom Feeney.  “We appreciate Senators Oscar Braynon, Dwight Bullard and Gwen Margolis and Representative Richard Stark attending and speaking on the workers’ compensation matter before us.  It is great that our state leaders are participating in these critical discussions, as it will be important for them to have the resources they need as we head toward the 2017 Legislative Session and look to stabilize Florida’s successful workers’ compensation system.”

“Preserving our state’s workers’ compensation system and keeping it affordable for our businesses is essential,” said Peter Dyga, president of the Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter.  “We are happy to be a part of the Helping Florida Work Town Hall Tour and are pleased that our elected officials are actively involved in discussing the challenges and threats that employees and employers face in the workers’ compensation system.”
