Work Comp Rules Proposed

October 26, 2017

Rules to implement the 2017 workers’ compensation reform legislation championed by ABI have been noticed by the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Division and are open for public comment. ABI gave initial input into the rule draft. The rule includes rule provisions intended to implement the new vocational training and education program for employees determined to have a career-ending shoulder injury. The program allows these employees to have an employer fund up to $15,000 in education costs at a community college for retraining to return to the workforce in a different career. If you have comments or questions about the rules, please contact Jessica Hyland at by November 6.
