Here's a look at some of the issues facing NFIB/West Virginia:
- Civil justice reform: West Virginia’s system of largely uncontrolled lawsuits and a small group of activist judges have stalled business investment opportunities and hurt employers in their ability to conduct business, employ people and grow in our state. We're fighting for meaningful civil justice, or “tort,” reforms. Without NFIB fighting for you at the capitol on this issue West Virginia will continue to be at a disadvantage when advocating that our state is open for business
- Unnecessary changes to workers' comp: West Virginia’s workers' compensation system has been working quite well and become stabilized. We're fighting attempts to increase unemployment benefits. We believe there's no reason to change a stable and competitive system.
- Unemployment reforms: We'll continue to fight and encourage policy makers not to overreact before the recessionary spike in unemployment of 2009 levels off in West Virginia. The current reforms are working and should not be tampered with.
