We have been talking about a Florida case involving workers' compensation. As we said, the case has a complicated procedural history, and the appeals court felt that history made it impossible for the court to rule on the central question. The question, as the title of the post suggests, is whether the workers' comp system itself is constitutional.
Both employers and worker advocates around the country have been following a Florida workers' compensation case. The central issue, as far as analysts and legal commentators are concerned, is the constitutionality of the basic premise of the workers' comp system -- that is, that worker's comp is the sole remedy available to injured workers.
