CGA Responds to Recently Signed Workers’ Compensation Law

On September 18, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a major overhaul of California’s $17 billion workers’ compensation insurance program. In response, CGA President Ron Fong issued the following:

“CGA is significantly concerned that absent corrective action, our member companies will begin to see the same double-digit increases in workers compensation premiums that plagued California a decade ago. We are pleased to support Governor Brown’s efforts this year to help address employers’ need for premium stability while also balancing the need of injured workers to receive fair compensation. We look forward to continuing to work with the Governor and his Administration in the coming years to ensure promised savings and efficiencies are realized.”
