2017 Changes To Iowa’s Workers’ Compensation Law
Recent changes to Iowa’s workers’ compensation law affect the amount of benefits to which injured workers are entitled. Unfortunately, these changes largely serve to decrease the amount of benefits by amending how certain injuries are designated and therefore compensated and how compensation in general is calculated.
