Florida Bill would allow Workers Comp Opt Out


A Florida lawmaker reportedly has introduced a bill that would allow companies in the state to forgo purchasing workers compensation insurance.

The bill, introduced Wednesday by state Rep. Cord Byrd, a Republican from Jacksonville Beach, Florida, would permit employers to elect not to purchase workers comp insurance, according to a copy of the legislation posted online by Florida Politics. Employers that don’t provide workers comp coverage would be required to notify their employees, and their workers would be allowed to file tort claims against the company if injured at work.
