We are pleased to introduce a new, creative element to this year's Comp Summit proceedings. Through the courtesy of the parties and the Workers' Compensation Board, our audience will hear a live Appellate Division argument. The case is Daigle v. High View Manor, et al., App. Div. No. 14-4. and involves an interesting "arising out of" issue presented from a workplace fall on a stairwell. This will be before an En Banc panel of Hearing Officers. We hope this informs the audience of the workings of this relatively new system and provides some insights into a key issue of the day.
Comp Summit is Maine’s annual, system-wide event for the workers’ compensation community. Each year we crunch the numbers, parse the language of the statue, and look to the future. The quality education at this conference reaches the legal community, occupational health and wellness providers, insurers and adjusters, case managers, and Maine employers and employees alike. We seek continuing education credit for Maine and New Hampshire attorneys, case managers (CCM, CRC, CDMS), and human resource professionals (HRCI general credit).
→ Our mission is the pursuit of common ground for injured workers, Maine employers and the Workers’ Compensation Board. We analyze the law’s impact on a tactical “day to day” basis and its strategic impact on employee rights, the business climate in Maine, and the grand bargain that created workers’ compensation systems in the first place.
