COVID-19 AND WORKERS’ COMP CLAIMS
The COVID-19 virus has been ravaging the world, United States, and Texas for over a year. The deadly virus has impacted our economy, the workplace, and workers’ compensation with devastating effects. COVID-19 is still with us as new variants that are more contagious are spreading across our nation and in Texas.
Join Deep East Texas Self Insurance Fund (DETSIF) and a panel of experts for a webinar which will provide our membership with an overview of the COVID-19 virus, the impact of COVID-19 on workers’ compensation, the claims investigation and handling process for COVID-19 claims, legal issues, and first responder and nurse COVID-19 presumption legislation that is under consideration by the Texas Legislature and is expected to pass.
