ABSTRACT
The article examines the reform of the workers' compensation law in California. It highlights the report of the California Auditor General which supported the positions of both the legislature and the Governor that reform was needed. The report stated that doctors' fees for workers' compensation cases were increasing at substantially greater rates than physician fees for treatment of non-job related injuries. The article highlights the key provisions in the Workers' Compensation Reform act of 1989. The major goal of the reform legislation from the perspective of employers is discussed.
