The ALFA International Workers' Compensation Practice Group (the “Group”) provides important coverage for ALFA International clients. While many large, general practice law firms have jettisoned their workers' compensation practices, over 50 ALFA International member firms maintain workers' compensation departments to better serve their clients.
Lawyers within this Group have considerable experience with all types of workers' compensation issues. Their expertise includes representation of clients before administrative agencies and other tribunals as well as general counseling and compliance work. The Group emphasizes active networking between and among lawyers and clients. Seminars and other meetings are designed to be open forums for free-wheeling discussions of workers' compensation issues. Clients have ample opportunity to glean valuable insight from ALFA International lawyers while also exchanging ideas and advice with peers who serve in similar positions within other companies.
The Workers' Compensation Practice Group publishes ALFA International's most popular compendium which summarizes the basic workers' compensation laws in all 50 states. Contact Rosemary Drexel (firstname.lastname@example.org) to purchase a copy of the 2012 edition ($20.00 USD).
In addition, The Group publishes a detailed coursebook in conjunction with each of its major seminars. A periodic newsletter is currently under consideration.
This Group typically sponsors one two-day seminar every 18 months and produces one or more tele-seminars between major events. Their most recent seminar took place September 26-28, 2012 at the Farimont Copley Plaza in Boston. Members also meet annually at ALFA International headquarters in Chicago to plan future events and discuss recent developments in workers' compensation law. Attorney members frequently speak before trade associations and other professional organizations.
The Workers' Compensation PG held their most recent seminar September 26-88, 2012 in Boston, MA. The WCPG will hold their next seminar in the spring of 2014. Please check back for details.
