As I reported three weeks ago in “Breaking News on ACA and Exclusive Remedy”, the issue of constitutionality of Florida’s workers’ comp system was settled by the 3rd District Court of Appeal.
However, Stephanie Goldberg reported today in Business Insurance that an advocacy group has petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to review the case that challenges the constitutionality of the state’s workers’ comp system.
The Florida Workers’ Advocates filed an appeal with the Court to review The State of Florida v. Florida Workers’ Advocates et al.
The case questions whether workers’ comp is an adequate exclusive remedy for injured workers. This issue was discussed in my previous articles, “Constitutionality of Workers’ Comp Challenged: What that could mean for Medical Travel” and “Update on Constitutionality of Work Comp in Florida“.
As far as Florida Workers’ Advocates are concerned, the issue of the constitutionality of workers’ comp has not been settled, so expect more on this in the future.
What does it mean for you?
Probably nothing, because the Supreme Court will probably uphold the District Court of Appeal ruling that the plaintiffs had no legal standing to challenge the constitutionality, and that will settle the matter.
