The NCAJ expects N.C. Representative Dale Folwell to file a bill to vastly reduce the rights of injured workers in North Carolina sometime prior to March 24. While the exact substance of the proposed legislation is uncertain, the intent of this bill is clear: to pander to the special interests of the N.C. Chamber of Commerce, the Insurance Industry, and large corporations. The legislators proposing this bill will do so at the expense of individuals who suffered legitimate, disabling injuries in North Carolina in their employment. The victim of this law will be you!
It is expected that Representative Folwell and his colleagues will propose legislation that will completely overhaul the in North Carolina.
This is a shameless attempt to quickly push through a bill (largely without the public's knowledge), and completely change the law to the detriment of disabled workers for the benefit of special interest groups.
