About 75 workers' comp opinions are handed down each year. A majority of the decisions are from workers' compensation appeals panels, but a handful of them come from the Tennessee Supreme Court. Learn about the most significant workers' compensation cases from 2010 by participating in the all-new webinar, 2010 Workers' Compensation Update.
Learn how recent Tennessee Supreme Court rulings can be applied to your current caseload and get answers to your questions, including:
- Can a laid-off employee seek reconsideration of a previously capped award?
- What does an employee need to show to set aside a workers' compensation settlement?
- When is an assault in the workplace within a worker's scope of employment?
Plus, the legislature has been busy:
- Employees who continue working after a reduction in pay or hours due to economic conditions are not entitled to reconsideration if the reduction affected at least 50 percent of all hourly employees in the same location.
- Maximum medical improvement is presumed when the injured worker's treating physician makes a determination or 104 weeks after the commencement of pain management.
- Generally, sole proprietors have to maintain coverage on themselves, but there are a few exceptions which can be applied for.
Your webinar presenter, Fred Baker, editor of the Tennessee Workers' Compensation Handbook, 4th Edition, will shed light on the most critical workers' compensation cases impacting your practice, including such topics as:
- Admissibility of IME reports
- Reconsideration of awards/settlements
