If you were injured while working for your employer, you might be afraid to report it for fear of retaliation or firing. Moreover, you may have friends who have told you that workers’ compensation cases are often denied in Kansas.
The 2011 Kansas Workers Compensation Act (KWCA) was the first significant reform made to Kansas workers compensation laws since 1993. The Act came about as a result of negotiations between labor interests and businesses and was passed by the Kansas Senate and House of Representatives.
It’s important to note that the state's workers compensation laws are overly complicated. They have strict time limits, strict cutoffs on the amount of compensation you can receive, and (worst of all) those limitations have only become more restricted over time.
