Summary

Summary

The Judicial Branch Workers’ Compensation Program (JBWCP) Advisory Committee recommends approval of the workers’ compensation cost allocation for fiscal year (FY) 2019-20 in the amount of $18.2 million for the trial courts and $1.3 million for the state judiciary. Based on a reduction from the previous year in the total cost of claims and stable payroll growth overall, the FY 2019-20 funding need reflects a 4.51 percent reduction (trial courts) and a 2.48 percent reduction (state judiciary) in cost allocations.
