HB 1107-Relating to Public Records/Workers’ Compensation
On Thursday, April 20th, HB 1107, by Representative Ben Albritton (R-Bartow) was read for a third time on the House floor and passed unanimously by a vote of 115 yeas to 0 nays.
This bill would exempt private and personal identifying information of an injured worker or deceased employee from public record. Currently, this information is open to the public and often times injured workers are inundated with outreach from attorneys wanting to take on their cases immediately after filing their claim.
HB 1107 will now go to the Senate floor for consideration.
AIF SUPPORTS protecting the private information of injured or deceased employees.
