New California Law For Peace Officers Injured At Work Peace Officers Injured

Peace Officers Injured At Work:  Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. has signed Assembly Bill (AB) 1749 into law. AB 1749 clarifies that fully sworn peace officers can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits if, while in the midst of pursuit, apprehension, protection or preservation of life or property within or out of the state, the officer suffers injury, disability or death. This is a bill that was introduces as a result of the Las Vegas mass shooting nearly one year ago.  Assembly member Tom Daly (D-Anaheim), Chairman of the Assembly Insurance Committee, introduced the bill for peace officers injured at work, regardless of whether they are on duty or not.  This new California Labor Code is a good law for peace officers.  Peace Officers Injured

During the Las Vegas shooting on October 1, 2017, the injured included off-duty peace officers, law enforcement officers, deputy sheriffs, District Attorney investigators and others, who heroically brought themselves and others to safety, then automatically returned to the killing field to save more lives. These sworn law enforcement officers’ training and instincts to save lives immediately kicked in when the gunfire erupted. These members, along with all the other members of law enforcement, are true heroes.

The law goes into effect on January 1, 2019 and will also apply to the peace officers injured on the job in the Las Vegas shooting last year.  Whether peace officers, law enforcement officers, deputy sheriffs, District Attorney investigators and others, are in state or out of state, these officers are never off duty. The public reasonably expects these officers to act in these situations.  Thus, if they are are injured, are disabled or die as a result, the appropriate remedy should be provided, protection under California Workers’ Compensation Laws.

This is definitely a good thing for California.  We represent many police and safety officers throughout California.  They deserve the very best we have to offer.
