The Arizona Legislature recently amended the reporting requirements for employees making workers’ compensation claims for on-the-job exposure to Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MSRA). Effective July 20, 2011, employees must report possible significant exposure to MSRA to their employers within 30 days. Employees must be diagnosed for MSRA-related medical conditions within 15 days of the report to their employer.
