Having genuine industry leaders impart tangible ideas and strategies ensures all participants will receive immense value,” shares Chris Tritt, President & Co-Founder of Insurance Management Consultancy Group.

Attorneys Roos and Shaw will help HR professionals and business owners understand whether contraction of the coronavirus (COVID-19) would be considered a work related accident for which compensation would be due. The analysis assumes that potential affected workers would be emergency medical technicians, law enforcement officers and correctional officers that claim contact with, or exposure to, the virus and includes a statutory and case law analysis based upon the state of workers’ compensation law.
