Texas Supreme Court Will Review ExxonMobil Workers Comp Case

June 4, 2018

 

The Texas Supreme Court will review a request asking if a workers compensation payback waiver used by ExxonMobil is legal under state law.

The oil giant has claimed that thousands of other businesses in Texas use the waiver, under which companies can require workers comp insurers to forfeit their right to be reimbursed for benefits when the company caused the injury,  according to Law360.

The state high court accepted the request for review on Friday.

The court also accepted review of cases that consider whether recent cutbacks in public employee pensions are legal under the Texas Constitution.
