NOTE: BOXER & GERSON STRONGLY SUPPORTS ASSEMBLY BILL 5 AND ITS INCREASED PROTECTIONS FOR CALIFORNIA WORKERS IN THIS UNCERTAIN ECONOMY
Boxer & Gerson, LLKP attorneys Justin Litvack, Gary Roth and Dennis Popalardo visited the sip stewards at OPEIU Local 29 in Oakland on March 8. Their topic was “Do’s and Don’ts of Workers’ Comp and Personal Injury Claims.” OPEIU is the Office and Professional Employees International Union, representing office workers, technical professionals and hospital employees. Local 29 counts some 4,000 members on its rolls, including Kaiser Permanente employees, for whom the union recently secured an agreement that looks to be a model for health care labor relations.
Litvack and Popalardo are workers’ compensation specialists, while Roth’s focus is on personal injury law at Boxer & Gerson.
