This month US Labor Secretary Thomas Perez released the highly anticipated report on workers’ compensation entitledDoes The Workers’ Compensation System Fulfill Its Obligations to Injured Workers?The report’s answer to that question is “no,” and it cites deficiencies  in the workers’ compensation system and ominously recommends that legislators consider “whether to increase the federal role in oversight of workers’ compensation programs.” 

We note with interest that the report commented on the recent Workers’ Compensation Summit, stating that “a gathering of diverse workers’ compensation experts in a self-styled summit concluded that benefit adequacy, system failures, and delays in medical treatment were the three foremost issues requiring action.” Our own Jane Stone was one of those “diverse workers compensation experts” that participated in the Summit.
