Workers' Compensation Opt-out, not a good option for North Carolina.

Employees may not recognize that Opt-out programs are a new and troubling trend in the United States. An Opt-out system essentially allows an employer to develop their own workplace injury plans. "Those plans generally cover fewer injuries, cut off benefit payments sooner, control access to doctors and even impose mandatory settlements" according to a NPR - ProPublica investigation. North Carolinians should be aware of this disturbing trend, and work to ensure that it does not affect employees in this state in the future.
