A package of new workers’ compensation laws were signed into law on October 1, 2008, each of which took effect immediately.  These new laws, among other things, provide for additional penalties for an employer’s failure to comply with the workers’ compensation laws or orders of a workers’ compensation judge, require proof of workers’ compensation to be submitted with a company’s annual report, and allow an employee in need of physician-certified emergent medical care to file a motion for emergent medical treatment along with or after the filing of a workers’ compensation claim petition.
