Roughly fifty years ago, on July 31, 1972, the National Commission on State Workmen’s Compensation Laws delivered its report to the President and Congress. The report outlined 84 recommendations, 19 of which were deemed “essential.” The reforms adopted in response to the National Commission’s recommendations have formed the basic structure of the modern workers’ compensation system in America today.
Join the U.S. Department of Labor for a panel discussion, including the Chairman of the National Commission, to consider the legacy of the National Commission, and whether the workers’ compensation system is fulfilling its obligation to injured workers.
The Department of Labor is very excited to welcome three distinguished participants, Prof. John F. Burton, Jr., Prof. Emily Spieler and Mr. Alan Pierce, as participants in the panel.
