Seminar Agenda

Maximizing Subrogation Recovery via Contract Indemnity Clauses

Ohio’s subrogation statute provides employers with a mere fraction of recovering the overall costs paid on a claim due to injuries caused by a third-party. Learn how invoking the indemnity clause in third-party contracts can result in the recovery your company deserves.

Speaker: Andrew Thaler

The Bermuda Triangle of Employee Leaves

This session covers how employers can navigate ADA, FMLA, and workers’ compensation leave laws. This remains a hot issue for employers since they must tread carefully to limit potential exposure.

Speaker: Lauren Kemp

Defenses to the Payment of TTD

Temporary total disability compensation (TTD) is a significant workers’ compensation cost driver for both state-funded and self-insured employers. Effective strategies to control TTD liability are an important part of an employer’s workers’ compensation program. This session will provide a legal analysis of the best practices for TTD cost containment.

Speaker: Nick Davis

VSS – huh? What Is a VSSR and How To Prepare for It

Employers often think following OSHA guidelines is enough, but it’s not. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation has its own set of safety rules employers must follow to avoid injuries or face hefty fines and penalties. Learn what a VSSR is, and more importantly, how to avoid one.

Speaker: Sue Roudebush

How Do “Course and Scope” Affect Claims?

The Ohio Workers’ Compensation Act defines an injury as one “received in the course of, and arising out of” employment. This session will examine these general principles as an important element of workers’ compensation defense and review what is and is not compensable under the law.

Speaker: Larry Davison

Year in Review

This presentation will provide an overview of the important and interesting developments in Ohio workers’ compensation case law throughout the last year.
