Wrongful Termination in the Workers’ Compensation Context
The termination of a workers’ compensation claimant provides unique risks. Knowing the law can help you effectively manage those risks and avoid costly litigation. (Speaker: Tim Reilly)
Voluntary Termination and its Effect on Payment of Temporary Total Disability Benefits
The standard for determining what constitutes a voluntary abandonment of employment sufficient to preclude payment of temporary total disability benefits has been evolving. Ms. Felson will lead a discussion focused on recently decided voluntary termination cases and what employers need to be aware of when a workers’ compensation employee is fired, quits, or retires. (Speaker: Cynthia Felson)
Workers’ Compensation Settlements and the Resolution of Troublesome Employment Issues
A workers’ compensation settlement provides an opportunity to settle other employment issues in a manner attractive to the employee and cost effective for your company. Mr. Duran will address how to expand the settlement agreement to address all outstanding issues. (Speaker: Sam Duran)
Employee Medical Records: The Physician-Patient Privilege, the Use and Misuse of Records, and Employer Liability
In order to defend most workers’ compensation claims, employers must have access to employee medical records. But getting the medical records necessary, and the manner in which the records are used, can result in liability. (Speaker: Charles Stephan)
On the horizon: Group Self-Insurance
A comparative analysis of group self-insurance programs in various states. Will Ohio adopt it? How should it be implemented? (Speaker: Andrew Thaler)
