On September 26, 2016, we will be presenting a comprehensive overview of the workers’ compensation system, summarizing the history of the system as well as the recent developments in the law. Our presentation will cover topics such as the obligation to carry workers’ compensation insurance, types of injuries that are recognized in California, time limits to pursue and defend against claims, the current state of access to medical treatment for injured workers, and indemnity benefits owed to injured employees.

The presentation will be given by an experienced attorney who represents injured workers, a similarly experienced attorney who represents employers, and a workers’ compensation Judge so that the audience members will receive information regarding the workers’ compensation system from a balanced perspective.

The California State Bar Executive Committee on Workers’ Compensation has formed a subcommittee devoted to Community Outreach. This Committee is dedicated to educating the community of employers and employees on the topic of workers’ compensation in California and the legal rights and liabilities inherent in the system.
