Third District Court of Appeal Decision Preserves Exclusive Remedy
On June 24, 2015, the State of Florida appeals a final summary judgement determining that section 440.11, Florida Statutes (2014), the “exclusiveness of liability” provision of the Florida Workers’ Compensation Law that immunizes from suit an employer and its employees for covered, work-related injuries, is facially unconstitutional under the United States and Florida Constitutions. Concluding that the threshold requirements for the prosecution of such claims were not met, we reverse.

5-Hour Law and Ethics Update
As part of the passing of HB 725 on October 1, 2012, adjusters are now required to complete a mandatory 5-Hour Law and Ethics Update CE Course every 2 years specific to the license held by the licensee. The new law will affect those licensees who began their continuing education cycle on November 1, 2012 and will complete the compliance cycle in October, 2014.
This requirement is directly tied to CE compliance cycles ending 9/30/14 or earlier, and CE compliance cycles ending 10/31/14 or later. The licensees compliance period begins with the end of your birth month following the second anniversary of the first license issuance date, and then biennially thereafter. In addition to the five-hour course, adjusters will be required to participate in 19- hours of elective credits, approved by the department and focusing on their specific line of insurance.
