JeffCo Judge Overturns Alabama’s Workers’ Compensation Law
Alabama’s workers’ compensation law needs an overhaul. That’s the message from a Jefferson County judge who struck down the law as unconstitutional last week. Alabama has some of the lowest workers’ compensation rates in the country. If the ruling stands, it could help workers, but it would also have a big impact on employers and insurers. That’s where we start this week’s Magic City Marketplace
Birmingham is big business and small. But whatever the size of the operation, the marketplace is connected by people who have to grapple with numbers and projections and spin. We try and slice through the psychobabble that can be business news with a weekly discussion of who's up and who's down, why the market reacts a certain way or what a business closing or opening means to you.
