Building Trades Workers lose benefits with 2011 Republican Amendments to Workers Compensation Law

It used to be that while you were recovering from a job related injury you would continue to draw full workers compensation benefits and be eligible for rehabilitation to get you into shape for a job of comparable wages. No more! Under these 2011 Republican Amendments signed into law by Governor Snyder you have to look for work even while on restrictions. And your benefit will be cut to reflect wage earning capacity on jobs out there but not necessarily available. The wage for the job does not have to be equal or comparable to your pre-injury job. The result of all this is a minimum wage standard instead of the high wages usually earned by electricians. For more information on how to deal with this problem you should contact Andrea "The Hammer" Hamm at Miller Cohen, General Counsel to Local 58. 313-964-4454
