Workers' Compensation and Employers' Liability Law


Who We Are



The Workers' Compensation and Employers' Liability Committee focuses on workers’ compensation laws throughout the United States, including the interaction between workers’ compensation and other federal and state laws and regulations. Our Committee publishes several newsletters per year and provides educational instruction through webinars and an annual workers’ compensation seminar, which address substantive legal issues and national trends by experts in the field.


Welcome from Committee Chair

Welcome to the TIPS Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Committee.

Our Committee will again co-sponsor the Mid-Winter Seminar and Conference with Labor and Employment Law’s Workers’ Compensation Committee. The conference will take place March19-21, 2015 in Naples, FL. The room block at the Naples Grande Beach Resort is sold out. Arrangements have been made with the Naples Hilton, which is very close to the Grande Resort. A special group rate has been negotiated at the Hilton Naples of $279 for single or double occupancy rooms ($309 for rooms on the Executive Floor). To reserve your room, call the hotel directly at 1-239-430-4900. To receive the group rate, reference the “ABA Workers’ Compensation Midwinter Meeting. ”The group rate will be honored until Monday, February 25 at 5:00 p.m. or until the room block is exhausted. You must cancel your reservation seven days prior to your scheduled arrival date to avoid a one-night cancellation charge. Rooms will be available for check-in no later than 4:00 pm, with a checkout time of 11:00 am.  The registration fee is $395 for Section of Labor and Employment Law and Tort, Trial and Insurance Practice Section members, $495 for ABA members, $595 for non-members, $250 for government agency attendees, and $175 for guests. Those who can only attend one day of the seminar, may register only for that day at a rate of $125.

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 (lmills@scheldruplaw.com).
