By 2025, millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce.

This program will discuss the distinct millennial characteristics that are changing the workplace, and identify how those distinctions are revealing themselves in claims handling and employment litigation.

It will also discuss steps that hospitals can take to avoid being vulnerable to such claims, how to investigate the claims, and how to challenge the claims legally.

Mark Pew will provide an informative and interesting discussion on the implications of marijuana legalization and opioid use to the workplace and the workers’ compensation system. Fortyone states have some form of legalized medical cannabis. Reimbursement of marijuana by the workers’ compensation system has occurred in at least seven states, whether by court mandate or voluntarily. New Mexico even has it on its fee schedule. While marijuana may not be as benign as some advocates say, the argument that it is less dangerous than opioids—a treatment often enabled by workers’ compensation—has caused many around the country to reconsider their opinion. If workers’ compensation payers are not dealing with cannabis claims yet, they likely will be soon. This presentation will help explain the situation and implications.
