Representing the Injured Worker

Thursday, September 18, 2014 | 5:30 PM - 8:15 PM
Registration for this program is now closed. Please see the full listing for upcoming IPE programs.
Rutgers Institute for Professional Education and the New Jersey Advisory Council on Safety & Health invite you to attend this program, which will focus on representing injured workers from the perspectives of seasoned trial lawyers, labor lawyers, employment lawyers and workers’ compensation lawyers. You will hear a fundamentally different approach to employment-related cases. Case selection, based on the strength of the cases, can result in substantial attorneys’ fee awards and reduce the costs to workers under the fee shifting provisions of our laws, instead of fees being earned as a percentage of clients’ back pay.

You will also learn about appropriate remedies and protections for injured workers under New Jersey and federal laws, as well as the rights and responsibilities of both workers and employers.

Topics include:

• Workers’ Compensation
• Americans with Disability Act
• Family and Medical Leave Act
• NJ Law Against Discrimination
• ERISA/Social Security Disability
• Case selection
o Cases to avoid
o Cases that may require special expertise
• Economics of worker-related practices
