Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap rounds out our visit to Fabulous Las Vegas for the National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference! Day two continued fast and furious with a great session on the War on Opioids, plenty of great connections in the expo hall, a packed session with the top Workers’ Comp Bloggers, and finished off with a few more great receptions! Today’s program looks like a strong finish with some promising sessions!
In the news today is a new webinar from WCRI on the effects of lump-sum settlements on RTW in workers’ comp cases. The webinar will examine whether settlements discourage injured workers who want to return to work from doing so, or assist them in moving on with their careers and lives, and will cover several points related to the effects on workers’ employment statuses.
