Workers’ Compensation and Agriculture

I recently wrote an article for Progressive Cattleman outlining workers’ compensation laws and agriculture.  This is a complex area of law, and the rules differ by state, but it is extremely important for farmers and ranchers and employees to be aware of the law in their state.

(Note:  You may remember from a prior Weekly Round Up that the New Mexico Supreme Court recently held that the agricultural laborer exclusion to the NM Workers’ Compensation law was unconstitutional.  This article was written prior to that decision.)
