Saturday, December 30, 2006, 09:29 AMThis blog focuses on California workers' comp law and the politics and culture that surround it. Over time I will follow not only the development of the law but also the background stories behind those developments. And sometimes I'll be looking at California workers' comp in a larger context, bringing in stories from the business press and "think tanks" on the economy.
There are many valuable resources already available for those who follow California workers' comp, some of which are listed under the Resources and Links section of this site. In particular, www.workcompcentral.com, the California Workers' Comp Reporter (CWCR) and the Appeals Board Reporter are excellent resources. Although all three are subscription based media, each have limited free content.
California workers' comp is already blessed with several excellent commentators, including Melvin Witt of CWCR, DavidDePaolo of workcompcentral.com, defense attorney Jake Jacobsmeyer and applicants attorney Art Johnson. I'm looking forward to adding my voice to the mix.

In the next entry, I'll give my take on the top 10 comp stories of 2006.
