Workers’ Comp Summit: Aug 25-27, 2019 – Samoset Resort, Rockport, ME


Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2018 Comp Summit!

The following information is from the completed event. Check back in the spring for updates on the 2019 program.

2018 Legal Year-in-Review

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018 @ 8:15 am - 9:15 am

There will be a fresh approach to our annual analysis of the law of workers’ compensation in Maine, and it will provide you with the best of both worlds. First, conference attendees will receive a digital format compendium of appellate decisions, legislation, and rule-making from the past year. Second, our panel will select three or four key cases for argument. In each case, you will hear both sides of the issue presented, a description of the case holding, and an analysis of the impact of the decision – including guidance for legal counsel, and the implications for the larger workers’ compensation community in Maine. We will survey the audience over the summer to help determine the cases reviewed during this program. 

Faculty:  Mike Richards (Troubh Heisler in Portland), Karen Bilodeau (McTeague Higbee in Brunswick), and John Rohde (Workers’ Compensation Board).
