Semmes principal Mary W. Gamble will be speaking at the 2017 ALFA International – Workers’ Compensation Practice Group Seminar, which will be held in Austin, Texas March 22 – 24, 2017. Ms. Gamble will be a panelist during the breakout session titled “Avoiding the Back to Work Blues: Helping Claimants Get Back to Work by Accommodating Restrictions Before They Go Out.” This seminar panel will address strategies employers use to prevent injured employees from staying out of work for prolonged periods. Namely, the panel will discuss the pros and cons of employing formal return to work programs, where employers accommodate nearly all levels of work restrictions in order to keep a person at work, reducing litigation and insurance costs.
