LAW-2895 Worker's Compensation

Ms. Shenan L. Pellegrini,

2 credits day; 2 credits evening.

A review and focus of the workers' compensation laws in Massachusetts from both a substantive and procedural aspect. The course attempts to initially focus on what constitutes a personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment, and then focuses on all of the benefits available to injured workers and their families. The course also focuses on all of the procedures at the Department of Industrial Accidents from conciliation to conference to hearing to Reviewing Board and, if need be, to the Appeals Court. The course will also briefly focus on other available benefits, such as social security disability insurance benefits and relationship of third party tort cases with workers' compensation injuries. Finally, the instructor will make a conscientious effort to continually update the students with any recent relevant case law decisions.
