An Act To Establish a Presumption of Impairment in the Line of Duty for Corrections Officers under the Workers’ Compensation Laws
Sec. 1. 39-A MRSA 328-C is enacted to read:
328-C. Heart disease or hypertension suffered by a corrections officer
Heart disease or hypertension suffered by a corrections officer is governed by this section.
This bill amends the workers’ compensation laws by adding a presumption that heart disease or hypertension suffered by a corrections officer was caused in the course of employment as a corrections officer, similar to the provisions presuming that cancer contracted by a firefighter was caused by exposure to carcinogens through firefighting duties.
