As such, workers’ compensation law impacts workers, businesses, and the consuming public in direct, tangible ways. This course covers a broad range of topics, including the purpose of workers’ compensation, its intended scope, and the benefits and disadvantages for injured workers, employers, and the public. In addition, the course encompasses a variety of concepts fundamental to workers’ compensation, such as the definition of injury, causation requirements, mental injuries, occupational diseases, the types of employments exempted, and notice and procedural requirements.
