Guaranteed they'll see a huge uptick in claims, now that there's insurance money to pay for it.

As is the case in other local, state and federal injuries, a large number of them will be fraudulant can count on that!

This now opens for the door to more fraud and claims. Massachusetts has a system that they know is broken and greatly abused, but they still keep on promoting it.

"One of the biggest changes under workers' compensation will be that the town will now follow a set schedule of compensation payments as outlined by the statute." Hum this seems like a collective barganning issue to me! Is the town going to pay employees less?

Worker benefits are of the utmost importance in providing a safety net as well as creating better work conditions. Worker safety should be a consideration in the upcoming elections, which is why I'm voting for Debbie Silberstein in the 2010 state senate race.

Just keep raising salaries and benefits to public employees,and then complain that you can't make budget.
