Authority Webinar: New COVID-19 Workers’ Compensation Presumption (SB 1159): What You Need to Know

California Governor Newsom recently signed SB 1159, which creates a new workers’ compensation presumption for COVID-19.

On Thursday, October 1, 2020, the California JPIA will be hosting a webinar with Jeff Rush, Workers’ Compensation Program Manager, and Tim Karcz, Senior Risk Manager, who will be addressing multiple aspects of this legislation including:

  • Who is eligible for this presumption?
  • How is the claim investigation process impacted?
  • What new responsibilities does SB 1159 create for employers?

The webinar will run from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and there will be an opportunity for attendees to submit questions to the presenters.
