COVID-19: Impact on Workers' Compensation and OSHA 

Is COVID-19 a compensable work injury under state workers’ compensation acts?  With the complexity of the current legal environment and continued focus on the wellbeing of the injured workers, new claims management techniques and solutions are being utilized to care for the injured worker, expedite return to work and maximize outcomes.
