NJ Governor Patrick Murphy signed legislation enacting sweeping measures to provide workers’ compensation benefits to essential workers who contract coronavirus [COVID-19] and provides dependency benefits to their survivors. 


The Trump Administration in its proposed FY 2020 Budget has proposed elimination of the workers’ compensation reverse offset. The elimination will act as a cost saving measure and will level the playing field for all workers’ compensation system throughout the United States. 

 NJ Governor Murphy has signed legislation (S.3036) that prohibits a provider to an injured worker of medical, surgical, other treatment, or hospital service pursuant to the workers' compensation law, R.S.34:15-1 et seq., from reporting any portion of their charges which are alleged to be unpaid, to any collection or credit reporting agency, bureau, or data collection facility.
