Assembly Member: Athletes Abusing Calif. Workers Comp
In an Orange County Register opinion piece, Assembly member Curt Hagman (R-Chino Hills) argues that "California is a magnet for millionaire athletes seeking to take advantage of California workers' compensation system." He has co-authored a bill (AB 1309) to prevent "these outrageous abuses." Hagman concludes that such athletes "should not exploit resources that are intended to help the average worker recover from a costly on-the-job injury."
