Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. introduced a measure that would amend the Workman's Compensation Provision, and provide compensation benefits to individuals injured while in the conduct of their official duties at a level equal to and no less than the person's income level received prior to the injury. Bill 311 would require that any public employee who receives Workman's Compensation should continue to receive pay until such time that they are no longer recipients of the benefits.

The bill would also compensate government workers medical costs and treatment if the person is injured while performing a service for the Government of Guam.
