Matthew D. Monson, Esq. and Laura H. Abel, Esq. attended the first Comp in Focus luncheon speaker series presented by Louisiana Comp Blog. This series addresses emergent issues in the workers’ compensation industry with speakers from both the employer/insurer and claimant/labor sides of the arena. More than a lecture, Comp in Focus seeks to create a dialogue in the comp community on the “big picture” issues and how they affect the industry on a local level. This meeting’s speaker was Charles R. “Chuck” Davoli, who addressed the push for “opt-out” statutory provisions in workers’ comp systems around the country. A special thanks to Nina Luckman of Comp Blog and Mark Tullis of LCI Workers’ Comp. (www.lciwc.com) for putting on such an informative event!
