Mark Goodman Speaking at SBWC 2023 Regional Educational Series
Swift Currie partner Mark Goodman will speak at the SBWC 2023 Regional Educational Series. The series will take place over four dates across the state of Georgia.
The Honorable Ben Vinson, Chairman of the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, along with Board Directors, Honorable Frank R. McKay and Honorable Neera Bahl, and Executive Director Delece A. Brooks, will visit select cities throughout Georgia as part of the 2023 Regional Educational Series. Under their leadership, the Board will host four in-person seminars providing valuable information for employers, insurers/self-insurers, human resource and risk managers, insurance claims adjusters, rehabilitation specialists, medical service providers, case managers, workers’ compensation attorneys, paralegals, and other workers’ compensation system participants.
The program will include an address from the chairman highlighting legislative and board rule changes in addition to the annual case law update from local administrative law judges, claimants’ and defense attorneys explaining recent developments in Georgia law. Additionally, the Chairman’s Advisory Public Education committee, composed of workers compensation industry experts, will present informative, exciting and energetic presentations on topics such as current events at the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, audience and panel discussions of transitional work, defenses to issues arising in claims and a fun and interactive question and answer segment on various workers’ compensation matters. Audience participation is encouraged, and the format provides opportunities for attendees to obtain general information or answers to specific questions they may have.
Mark Goodman will moderate a panel discussion titled "Bouncing Around the Light Duty Job," which will be an audience interactive discussion regarding providing light duty/transitional work to injured employees, its importance, how to develop a light-duty program, how to properly utilize the WC-240 process, avoiding common pitfalls and much, much more.
