Product Description

This Cases and Materials on Workers' Compensation is the most fundamental and successful tort reform of them all. Still, some legislatures have sought to curb what they deem to be overgenerous workers’ compensation laws, both in terms of liability and benefits, while many courts continue to construe the laws favorably to injured workers. Although this is a text for teaching the basics of workers’ compensation law, this revision incorporates cases and materials that examine both recent legislation and developing judicial trends. The revision should better prepare students to enter the field that remains the primary vehicle for compensating workplace injuries and a major source of work for many lawyers.

This Cases and Materials on Workers' Compensation covers occupational disease, vocational rehabilitation, "stress" claims, and "reform" efforts designed to stem the rising costs of the system. Early chapters explore the historical foundations of workers' compensation, its economic theory underpinnings, and its current relationship with FELA, Social Security, OSHA, and tort litigation. It includes expanded materials addressing the scope and exceptions to the exclusive remedy doctrine.
