WC416 NEW WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWS, 2021
The IEA and Professor David Chetcuti proudly announce its annual New Workers’ Compensation Laws of 2021 program. If you thought COVID-19 reporting requirements under SB 1159 were difficult, you haven’t seen anything yet! Effective January 1st, reporting requirements will quadruple! Learn what must be done to be in compliance.
Also, several additional professions and occupations were added to the long list exemption to the provisions of AB 5 that reclassified independent contractors as employees. These workers are once again independent contractors, no longer eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. All employers, claims administrators, insurance companies and TPAs must familiarize themselves with the exemption list to avoid accidentally accepting liability. The exemption list will be discussed during the webinar. .
Due to COVID-19 this program will be presented via a safe, one-hour webinar and will focus on changes in the law occurring in 2021 (SB 1159 will not be discussed as its effective date occurred earlier on 9/17/20).
