New Mexico Bill Reduces Compensation To Workers Under The Influence

 Friday, January 30, 2015


A New Mexico lawmaker has introduced a bill to reduce workers’ compensation in cases when an employee’s death or injury results from being drunk or high on the job. Republican Rep. Dennis Roch of Logan said being under the influence on the job puts lives at risk and the legislation would help protect workers and hold violators accountable.
Currently, an employee is eligible to receive 90 percent of his or her workers’ compensation if alcohol or drugs contribute to injury or death on the job. Under the legislation introduced Tuesday, the benefits would decrease by 35 percent to 85 percent.
