Finally, this module addresses coverage issues, specifically the requirements to have workers' compensation insurance.

  • Tennessee Workers' Compensation Affirmative Defenses for Employers and Idiopathic Injuries

    Workers' Compensation Insurance was created to insure that liability for certain injuries at the workplace be placed with the individual or entity that is in the best position to prevent such injuries in the first place. With this in mind, employers will sometimes take the affirmative position that the injury is not one that was intended to be covered by Workers' Compensation.

    This module covers employee's willful misconduct, intentional self-inflicted injuries, willful failure to use safety precautions, intoxication, and statute of limitation defenses. Also discussed, are the factors used in determining whether a fall at the workplace is compensable. Case law examples are used to show different factors and applications used to help characterize a fall as compensable or non-compensable.

  • Tennessee Workers' Compensation and the Medical Impairment Rating (MIR) Registry Program

    The purpose of the MIR Registry is to establish a resource to resolve disputes about the degree of medical impairment ratings. This module gives an overview of the Registry, the layout for the typical process for obtaining a MIR, a discussion on the MIR report, and an in depth discussion of the evaluation process.
