Carve-Outs/Alternative Workers' Compensation Programs
Provisions of workers' compensation reform legislation, implemented through Labor Code Sections 3201.5 and 3201.7, allow employers and unions to form a labor-management alternative workers' compensation program also known as a carve-out. A key feature of most carve-outs is an alternative dispute resolution process. This section includes both research and guidebooks on carve-outs.
