Missouri Alliance for Retired Americans v. Dept. of Labor

Date: August 11, 2011

Missouri Supreme Court VICTORY!

In this case the Missouri Supreme Court will determine whether or not the amendments to the state’s workers’ compensation system approved by the state legislature in 2005 are constitutional. These amendments to the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Act, passed as Senate Bill 1, were enacted in response to the widespread abuse of the past workers’ compensation system. The changes to the system were drastically needed. Before 2005, the system covered nearly any type of injury that occurred to any worker that had even the most remote relation to work.

Status:  DECIDED.  Supreme Court of Missouri declined to decide the constitutionality of the workers’ compensation reforms as not ripe.  Amicus brief filed on 08/22/07.
