MIssouri Legislatures Pass New Workers Compensation Bill

The Missouri House passed a bill last Thursday which approves legislation barring employees from suing co-workers for job-related injuries.  Civil suit will not longer be an option aganist co-workers when employers have workers compensation coverage.

Co-employee liability bill is HB1540

A similar bill was passed in 2010, but Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the measure earlier this year.

This is a positive step and a necessary bill to help protect Missouri employees from co-worker lawsuits.  The bill prevents employers from having to manage an unfortunate circumstance in the middle of managing a claim.
