Workers' compensation provides medical treatment, wage replacement and permanent disability compensation to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses, and death benefits to dependents of workers who have died as a result of their employment. The COVID-19 pandemic has created countless challenges for employers, including increased potential to workers compensation liability. Employers must take every precaution to avoid workers’ compensation liability, particularly because of the potential long term consequences of the virus, including damage to the lungs and other organs. Such an occupational exposure case can be re-opened years later. Join us for this one hour session as we provide an overview of the topic, including:
- Who is covered by the N.J. Workers’ Compensation law
- What is a workplace injury or illness
- Burdens of proof
- Employer defenses
- Job protection for injured or ill workers
- COVID-19 Considerations
