Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law
Health and Health Care Forum

Dr. Vern Saboe talks with host host Roberta Hall about injured workers' rights, specifically, the right under Oregon law to choose what treatment provider s/he sees after an injury on the job. In some cases, injured workers do not know their rights and are sent directly to a clinic of the employer’s choosing. We discuss a proposed legislative remedy and how this remedy has been blocked when it has come before the legislature in the past. In this discussion we learn about a means by which the will of legislators, and by extension the will of the people who elect them, can be circumvented, not just in this type of case but perhaps others as well.
