As "baby boomers" postpone retirement and accelerate the aging of the workforce, widespread concerns are emerging about the potential rise in workers’ compensation and discrimination claims. The long-standing tenet that younger workers have much higher injury rates is no longer true. And there are key differences in leading types of injuries by age. For example, older workers tend to have more rotator cuff and knee injuries, while younger workers have more back and ankle sprains. Hear experienced practitioners in the fields of workers’ compensation and employment law analyze these trends and offer surprising, yet reassuring, conclusions.
Attend this new seminar to learn how to handle the impact of shifting workplace demographics interweaving the distinct worlds of workers’ compensation and employment discrimination claims. Whether you primarily practice workers’ compensation law or handle discrimination claims, this program is for you.
