The 40th Annual Worker’s Compensation Update provides in-depth discussion of the current climate, advice for preparing your practice to meet changing regulations, and guidance in handling ethical requirements.
Stay ahead of changes

Weighing in on the current system
Enacted early in 2016, Act 180 revised key aspects of worker’s comp. Find out what the new law means for items such as:
- Disability rates
- Statutes of limitation
- Medical experts
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Temporary and permanent disability schedules
Plus, learn how pre-existing conditions, misconduct, impairment, and Social Security Disability Insurance can affect benefits.
Watch out for what’s next
More revisions may be on the horizon for Wisconsin’s worker’s comp program. New legislation expected to be reintroduced to the legislature next session would make even more sweeping changes than Act 180. Explore anticipated legislation and how the upcoming election might affect the likelihood of its viability.
