The West Virginia Workers Compensation Association offers a unique forum for members. Only as a group can employers initiate input, change and reform to the states workers’ compensation laws and rules. Through the Association, companies are assured a voice for positive change and reform.
Many employers now see West Virginia as a stable workers’ compensation state. This has not always been the case. Our work and effort in 2003 reformed the workers’ compensation program that has provided a more stable and equitable program for both employee and employers. This work is not done; it is an ongoing effort to keep the legislators educated on the need to maintain the system that has been put in place. Your support in this organization ensures that your interests are protected and you have a voice in how workers’ compensation issues are addressed in West Virginia.
