Workers’ Rights Attorney to Address Conference on Workers’ Compby Johanna Ryan on May 1st, 2017
This Thursday, May 4th, 2017, EE&A’s own, Ian Elfenbaum, will speak at a seminar on workers’ compensation sponsored by the orthopedics department at Rush University Medical Center.
Midwest Orthopedics at Rush is a leader in research and treatment of serious musculoskeletal injuries (not to mention serving as team physicians to the White Sox!)
Ian will be presenting the perspective of an advocate for injured workers in a presentation that centers on the seriously injured worker who cannot go back to his or her original job. Are workers expected to search for alternative employment, and what kinds of help are they entitled to? When is vocational retraining in order? When is an injured worker eligible for lifetime benefits for “permanent and total disability”?
This all-day conference will take place at the Hotel Indigo Naperville Riverwalk, 120 Water Street in Naperville. Click here for more information and to register.
