Current Arguments For and Against Workers' Compensation Reform in Pennsylvania

A Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal Article refers to the WCRI findings (January 21,2004 post) and includes commentary from a Harrisburg policy institute stating the cost of workers compensation insurance in Pennsylvania is about 8 percent above the national average cost per $100 of payroll, which ranks Pennsylvania 19th highest in the United States. The average benefit is more than 25 percent higher than the national average, ranking 11th. The article also includes comments from two claimants' counsel.
