What's Next? A Prospective Glimpse at the Workers' Compensation Commission and the Workers' Compensation Act.

Cousins - Lawrence Blog Photo-thumb-173x238-39637.jpgThe prediction business is not an easy one.  That's why Las Vegas casino owners seem to stick around awhile.  In the workers' compensation arena, it can be difficult to guess what is in store with respect to appellate decisions involving the substantive law or with pending legislation affecting the rights of injured workers.  Despite not having a crystal ball, I took a shot at predicting what could be in store for the Commission as well as the Workers' Compensation Act in my recent Chair Column in the Compensation Quarterly.

BLOG RE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

Cousins - Al Blog Photo.jpgOn Friday, April 25, 2014, I was invited by the Civil Justice Foundation of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association to speak at a seminar about Independent Contractors and workers' compensation. If your employer classifies you as an independent contractor, rather than as an employee, you might not be able to collect workers' compensation benefits for a work related injury, if that classification is found to be accurate.
