Summary as introduced:

Workers' compensation; injuries to public safety employees. Provides that a public safety employee who is injured in the course of his employment is not required to prove that the nature of his employment exposed him to a special, additional, peculiar, or particular risk of injury to which a member of the public is not generally subject. The measure further provides that (i) an injured public safety employee is not required to prove a causal connection between the conditions under which his employment was required to be performed and the resulting injury and (ii) the characterization of the causation of such an injury as an act of God shall not be a defense to a claim for compensation under this title. The bill was incorporated in SB 896.
