Legislative Update RE: Senate Bill 112 (H94), “Create Jobs through Regulatory Reform”. Although the bill addresses a host of issues, this article will focus primarily on Sec. 18 affecting WC Insurance Cancellation as provided in N.C.G.S. 58-36-105(b) and (c) and its impact on WC liability in the Construction Industry.
Legislative UPDATE: On June 27, 2013, the House passed a committee substitute to SB 174, which, in addition to disapproving certain rules of the Industrial Commission (with, in some instances, mandating how to fix the rule), also made some changes to the Workers’ Compensation Act. This post covers in detail SB 174.
