“Workers’ Compensation Emerging Issues Analysis” is a Must Read for Workers’ Compensation Practitioners

For those of you who follow national trends and hot issues regarding workers’ compensation, I highly recommend the 2021 LexisNexis book entitled “Workers Compensation Emerging Issues Analysis.” The book contains a collection of articles written by leading experts in the field of workers’ compensation. The lion’s share of the book is dedicated to issues related to the pandemic. One such article, authored by Michael C. Duff, Professor of Law at the University of Wyoming, addresses presumptions and how they work in various states. Other topics include medical marijuana and opioid laws, understanding the AMA Guidelines in workers’ compensation, ridesharing, and the independent contractor defense. The book also contains a state-by-state legislative and case law analysis, a “trends analysis” and a section that reviews cases of particular interest to practitioners and employers. “Workers’ Compensation Emerging Issues Analysis” was co-edited by attorney, Thomas Robinson, and the National Workers’ Compensation Defense Network (NWCDN). Mr. Robinson is the co-author of Larson’s Workers’ Compensation Law (LexisNexis) and Larson’s Workers’ Compensation, Desk Edition (LexisNexis). The NWCDN is a nationwide network of independent law firms dedicated to promoting excellence in the practice of workers’ compensation law.
