HB 603 by Durham/SB 123 by Kelsey
: Deferred Until 2016/Sent to General Subcommittee of the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee
This bill seeks to ban collective bargaining agreements between public employees and local governments, utility districts, and other entities.
This piece of legislation would enact the "Tennessee Employee Injury Benefit Alternative." In other words, this is the bill that would let employers create their own Workers' Compensation plan and be exempt from state coverage.
As of right now, Senator Green plans to withdraw this bill and file a new one on the same subject. We will pass along details of the new legislation when we learn them.
