Working it Out: Ill, Injured, and Disabled Employees 2015

Product ID: CA2325D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Your clients are sick and tired of it, and they expect you to have the answers

Ill, injured, and disabled employees frequently raise legal issues relating to worker's compensation laws, state and federal FMLA statutes, and state and federal disability laws. It is rare for the same attorney to represent an employer or an employee in all of these areas. However, some strategic decisions made by an attorney in one area can limit the options in the prosecution or defense of other claims. It is your duty to understand how these laws overlap, and how they can be contradictory, if you are truly going to represent the best interests of your clients. Working it Out: Ill, Injured, and Disabled Employees will help you develop a framework for advising your clients by examining how these laws interact and affect the flexibility of future claims.
