Join our New Jersey attorneys as they discuss recent developments regarding medical marijuana and opioid pain medication and how employers and insurance carriers can navigate changing laws and policies to minimize legal risk.

·         March 13th: Showing Job Availability in a Post-Protz World, Presented by Chris Davis and Peter Harrison

Our attorneys will address Labor Market Surveys in Pennsylvania in light of recent case law making it, in some ways, more difficult to show job availability. This webinar highlights the importance of Labor Market Surveys as a tool for containing/reducing exposure made more complicated by the recent Protz decision which effectively eliminated the IRE system in Pennsylvania. Our Pennsylvania workers' compensation attorneys will address trying to construct "bullet proof" Labor Market Surveys and the legal pitfalls in this process.
