Publius

What is Point of Order:

The Publius discusses California’s multibillion-dollar workers’ compensation system. These essays represent a collaborative effort by those intimately familiar with our workers’ compensation system in all its various aspects. They will appear periodically as events warrant, but for the time being in each print edition. These essays are intended to stimulate thought and debate in a way that well-crafted sound bites before legislative committees, regulatory hearings, or journalists under deadline cannot do.

The Workers’ Comp Executive is proud to host this effort.
