Workers' Compensation and Workplace Injury Newsletter

Letter from the Workers' Compensation and Workplace Injury Editor

Colleen M. Fowler, Esq.

Our Fall Issue focuses on attempts by Employers and Insurance Carriers to deny injured workers the protections afforded by their states’ workers’ compensations systems.  Recent case law has afforded workers greater protection from being misclassified as independent contractors.   However, Opt-Out provisions in a few states are now threatening whether injured workers’ will continue to have any rights under the state workers’ compensation systems, as we know them.  A special thank you to Michael Gruber and Pete Winebrake for their contributions.   As the incoming Newsletter Editor, I welcome any articles you would like to have published.   Please contact me at or 570-225-6836.
