Welcome to the TIPS Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Committee.
We had a wonderful Mid-Winter Seminar and Conference with Labor and Employment Law’s Workers’ Compensation Committee on March19-21, 2015 in Naples, FL. The speakers were excellent and provided inside information, helpful tips and timely information on current trends in workers’ compensation. The 2016 Mid-Winter Seminar and Conference will take place in New Orleans, LA and planning for the conference is already underway. If you would like to participate in the planning, please let me know.
Our next in-person meeting will be held during the inaugural TIPS Section Conference April 29th - May 1st at the historic Philadelphia Ritz-Carlton in Philadelphia, PA. If you have not yet registered for the Conference, make certain you do so soon. With 27 hours of CLE programming, which includes 90 minutes of ethics credit, this program will meet all of your educational needs. The impressive speaker platform will feature more than 50 in-house counsel.
The room block at the Ritz-Carlton is currently sold out, but there are several hotels nearby which have rooms at very reasonable rates.
Our Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Law Committee meeting is scheduled for May 1, 2015 at 7:30 am.
We have invited the Employment Law, Staff Counsel, Auto Law, Medicine and Law, Insurance Regulation and Self-Insurers and Risk Managers Committees for a joint dinner at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 30, 2015. Please let me know by Thursday, April 9th whether you will be able to join us for dinner.
The due dates for submission of articles for future newsletters are April 17, 2015 and June 17, 2015. Please submit your articles for the newsletter directly to Lindsey Mills (email@example.com).
We are finalizing the questions to be answered in our 50 State Workers’ Compensation Compendium. You will be contacted shortly by Debra Doby for your help in answering 5-7 questions.
