Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has signed S.B. 2576, which makes changes to the workers’ compensation system. The provisions of the new law will allow companies to test for alcohol or drugs after a worker is hurt or killed on the job. Compensation will not be owed to someone found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including the improper use of legal prescription drugs. The provisions will also permit a partial reduction in payments to someone who is injured on the job but had a pre-existing condition such as a bad back.
