THE YEAR IS 2019. The United States Supreme Court has just declared state workers’ compensation systems to be “unconstitutional” because they no longer provide a “grand bargain” to injured workers. Recognizing the chaos this will cause, the Court gives states 6 months to enact new workers’ compensation legislation before implementing its order.

In this live edition of the popular “Out Front Ideas with Kimberly and Mark” educational series (and in conjunction with The Center for Excellence), our high-profile panel will debate the construction of workers’ compensation 2.0. What will it include? What will change? Everything is on the table in this never been done before event.
