NOTE: BOXER & GERSON STRONGLY SUPPORTS ASSEMBLY BILL 5 AND ITS INCREASED PROTECTIONS FOR CALIFORNIA WORKERS IN THIS UNCERTAIN ECONOMY
Workers’ comp specialist and blogger Julius Young has been invited to participate on a bloggers panel for the California Coalition on Workers’ Comp when they meet at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim on July 15. He will be warming up for that Southern California swing with a visit to nearby Laguna Niguel on May 19, when he will speak on a panel at the California Orthopaedic Association’s annual conference, discussing the continuing ramifications of a major case in the worker’ comp field, the “Almarez/Guzman” decision in 2012. The much discussed case shifted the dynamics of how permanent disability awards are appealed in the workers’ comp system.
Young is the award-winning author of the WorkersCompZone.com blog and a longtime advocate for injured workers from his post at Boxer & Gerson, LLP.
