2017 Spring Education Conference

Program will be presented live and via webcast.

Bill Armstrong will be speaking during the morning session:

The New Landscape of Psyche Claims
“The psyche claim has perhaps undergone the most legislative reform of any body part in the workers’ compensation history. It seems like every few years, the analysis for psyche claims changes, which makes it difficult for both evaluators and practitioners to properly develop medical evidence that is compliant with the law. This panel of expert litigators will provide their best tips for handling psyche claims post SB-863 including a detailed analysis of the latest case law affecting the psyche claim.”

CA State Bar Spring Educational Conference

Speaker: Bill Armstrong

Topic:    “Uber, Lyft and the Crowd-Sourced Worker”

It is a simple legal question with an extraordinarily complex legal answer: Do crowd-sourced workers, such as Uber or Lyft drivers, classify as employees or independent contractors? A recent spate of cases has highlighted the tricky issues in analyzing this question. Many scholars have proposed a new third class of worker to address the problem. This program will detail what issues to analyze when determining whether a crowd-sourced worker is an employee or independent contractor for purposes of workers’ compensation proceedings and the ramifications of each classification.
