Current Bill Summary


SB 323 - Currently, if an employee is seriously and permanently disfigured about the head, neck, hands, or arms, additional workers' compensation benefits may be allowed. This act only authorizes such an allowance when the employee is seriously and permanently disfigured about the head or neck and the disfigurement is a hindrance to employment.

This act is similar to HB 932 (2009).
