Insurers Support Town Hall Tour to Discuss Florida Workers Compensation System

TAMPA, Fla. – The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) today applauds the Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) and Helping Florida Work as they kick off the town hall tour on the state’s workers compensation system. The town hall tour will be an excellent forum for the business community and policymakers to come together and discuss the challenges facing the state workers compensation system. Together they will work to identify ways to preserve and foster a healthy marketplace that benefits workers and employers.

“PCI and our members continue to support the 2003 Florida workers compensation reforms that were put in place to protect the interests of employees, as well as help control costs for business owners,” said Logan McFaddin PCI’s regional manager. “The Florida state workers compensation system continues to provide the necessary benefits to injured workers in a timely, efficient, and economically sound manner. It is designed to balance the interests of both the employee and employer. We encourage both lawmakers and the public to attend these town hall meetings, and work towards a solution that protects workers while fostering a healthy Florida marketplace.”
