SB21-SSA1,896,208 102.56 (1) Subject to sub. (2), if an employee is so permanently disfigured as
9to occasion potential wage loss due to the disfigurement, the department or the
10division
may allow such sum as the department or the division considers just as
11compensation for the disfigurement, not exceeding the employee's average annual
12earnings. In determining the potential for wage loss due to the disfigurement and
13the sum awarded, the department or the division shall take into account the age,
14education, training, and previous experience and earnings of the employee, the
15employee's present occupation and earnings, and likelihood of future suitable
16occupational change. Consideration for disfigurement allowance is confined to those
17areas of the body that are exposed in the normal course of employment. The
18department or the division shall also take into account the appearance of the
19disfigurement, its location, and the likelihood of its exposure in occupations for which
20the employee is suited.

SB21-SSA1,897,254 102.565 (1) When an employee working subject to this chapter, as a result of
5exposure in the course of his or her employment over a period of time to toxic or
6hazardous substances or conditions, an employee performing work that is subject to
7this chapter
develops any clinically observable abnormality or condition which that,
8on competent medical opinion, predisposes or renders the employ employee in any
9manner differentially susceptible to disability to such an extent that it is inadvisable
10for the employee to continue employment involving such that exposure and the
11employee
, is discharged from or ceases to continue the employment, and suffers wage
12loss by reason of such that discharge from, or such cessation of, employment, the
13department or the division may allow such sum as it deems the department or the
14division considers
just as compensation therefor for that wage loss, not exceeding
15$13,000. In the event If a nondisabling condition may also be caused by toxic or
16hazardous exposure not related to employment, and if the employee has a history of
17such that exposure, compensation as provided by under this section or any other
18remedy for loss of earning capacity
shall not be allowed nor shall any other remedy
19for loss of earning capacity. In case of such discharge
. If the employee is discharged
20from employment
prior to a finding by the department or the division that it is
21inadvisable for the employee to continue in such that employment and if it is
22reasonably probable that continued exposure would result in disability, the liability
23of the employer who so discharges the employee is primary, and the liability of the
24employer's insurer is secondary, under the same procedure and to the same effect as
25provided by s. 102.62.

1of suitable employment, a statement that the employer has no suitable employment
2for the employee, or a report from a physician, chiropractor, psychologist, or
