A Special NWCR Two-Part Presentation: LATE-NIGHT!…WITH WORKERS’ COMP? (Part 1)
3:50 – 4:50 pm
Grand Ballroom 8A
Nine to five? Nine to ten? Or: all day, and all of the night! Like a dog that follows you home and begs in the kitchen, comp isn’t waiting around the workplace for an accident anymore. Workers’ compensation is being invoked in new and unfamiliar settings and as a consequence, there are new problems: work and workplaces; examining rooms; — even claims departments — all have entered unfamiliar, even unprecedented territory. But is it now 24-hour exposure, with treatment by laptop? Our renown presenters guide, relate, interpret, and chart the metamorphoses under broadly interrelated topics in two daily sessions with a different team each day. Stakeholders take heed!
Sampler of Monday’s session:
•Post pandemic claims challenges for the claims industry.
•Back home again in California: infectious liability.
•Big changes in Texas dispute resolution: is your state next?
•Medical Marijuana in Mississippi: template?
•Creeping cumulative trauma (now almost 20% of all California indemnity).
