Missouri AFL-CIO Applauds Gov. Nixon's Veto of Workers' Comp Database

July 2, 2013

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) vetoed a bill on Tuesday that would've created a database of information on all Missouri residents who have filed workers' compensation claims for workplace injuries. The database would have made the personal information of the program filers available to private employers. Nixon said the proposed database is an "affront" to the privacy rights of the state's citizens.
