Employers’ comp practice of cutting off benefits attacked « Virginia Lawyers Weekly

 medical-benefits-claim-form-thumb19927130As it stands now in Virginia, an employer can cut off benefits for injured workers when the employer asks the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission for an official decision on the employer’s request to end benefits.

Basically, its a shoot first and ask questions later approach, where an employer can just cut off work comp benefits before they get an official okay from the VWCC.

This has been going on for decades and hopefully will change soon because, in my opinion, it is easy for an injured worker’s rights to be violated.

There needs to be a clear procedure for the termination of workman’s comp benefits that doesn’t allow for the possibility of some poor injured worker losing money that he or she needs to survive.
