A bill was introduced in the California state Senate on Wednesday that would reduce the 90-day time period to rebut injury claims to 60 days for all injuries and employees. For members of law enforcement and first responders, the time period would be reduced to 30 days.
S.B. 1127 would further increase the number of compensable weeks for temporary disability benefits from 104 weeks to 240 “without limitation as to time from the date of injury.”
The partisan bill was introduced and referred to the Committee on Rules, where it is pending.
