5/16/15 – Gurvey’s Law 790 KABC

On Saturday 5/16/15 at 2:00PM Gurvey’s Law on Talk Radio 790 KABC had a special show dedicated to workers’ compensation issues for their listeners!  This show featured the headlines: “The Demolition of Workers’ Compensation”.  “Guess Who Usually Ends Up Paying for Workplace Injuries?” “ “Pro Publica and NPR say that Workers’ Compensation is Broken”. “OSHA Report Echos ProPublica and NPR’s Workers’ Compensation Findings”. These are actual headlines from various publications throughout the country over the last two months. ProPublica and NPR have concluded that the tax payer is often footing the bill for those injured on the job, and insurance companies and employers are profiting. Gurvey’s Law took a closer look at the investigative reports by ProPublica and NPR that are splitting the fabric of the workers’ compensation system in this country. And, it affects everyone, whether injured or not! Joining host, Alan Gurvey, was the Honorable Judge John Gutierrez (retired), Sacramento attorney Jason Marcus and San Diego attorney Robert McLaughlin to discuss why the public is now paying for work injuries. Kerri Kasem also called in, who was on assignment in Las Vegas at the Billboard Music Awards. This episode of Gurvey’s Law aired on 5/16/15 from 2:00PM – 3:00PM on Talk radio 790 KABC.

“The irony is that we are all workers, and what we do or have already done to injured workers and their affiliated families through our Legislature in passing SB899 and SB863, we do to ourselves.” – WCJ John Gutierrez
