Description

Although 2019 has been a very active year in workers' compensation, very few cases have been published. In this informative luncheon CLE, speakers will highlight five of the most interesting cases that have been published this year.

Charitable Contribution

The Workers' Compensation Section is pleased to announce that our September charity is Women Against Abuse. Women Against Abuse, a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency, is Philadelphia's leading domestic violence advocate and service provider and among the largest domestic violence agencies in the country. The mission of Women Against Abuse is to provide quality, compassionate, and nonjudgmental services in a manner that fosters self-respect and independence in persons experiencing intimate partner violence and to lead the struggle to end domestic violence through advocacy and community education. Women Against Abuse strives to provide a continuum of care -- from telephone crisis counseling to long-term supportive housing -- in a manner that promotes victim safety, autonomy and dignity In total, Women Against Abuse serves 15,000 individuals each year in Philadelphia through direct services, education, outreach and advocacy. Women Against Abuse serves a diverse population of survivors of domestic violence and the community at large. The majority of clients receiving direct services (including safe haven, legal aid and transitional housing) earn below federal poverty guidelines.
