We have all experienced a situation in which a worker is not performing up to our company’s standards and has been asked by management to improve their performance.  What should an employer do if this action results in the employee’s termination and the employee filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim? 

We will discuss the Post Termination defense which is often used to defend workers compensation claims in the beginning stages of a case.  This defense can apply to both specific and cumulative trauma claims.  We will discuss the “Good Faith Personnel Action” defense as a tool in defending against a claim asserting a psychiatric claim caused by an industrial accident.

Please save the date for our upcoming seminar where we discuss:

  • Can all post termination claims be denied?  How does a specific injury differ from a cumulative trauma claim and why can a cumulative trauma injury be an “Exception to the Rule”?
  • What can an employer do to help defend post termination claims? 
  • What is an example of a good faith personnel action?
  • How are psychiatric injuries different and what defenses do we have?
