Denise, along with Dr. James Rochester of WORKNET Occupational Medicine, will discuss what makes an illness an “occupational illness” and thus compensable under workers’ compensation. The duo will explore how compensation may respond to the Coronavirus and whether employers are at risk of workers comp claims if an employee is diagnosed with the virus while employed. Lastly, they will provide steps companies should be taking to protect themselves.
