The Sixth Edition of Workers' Compensation Law is a blend of conventional casebook style and concise text. The basic concepts of workers' compensation—including course of employment, arising out of employment, injury by accident, employee status, and types of disability—are covered in the more traditional fashion, with case excerpts provided for students to learn these concepts. The Sixth Edition preserves the essential and thorough treatment of these basic aspects while adding or expanding material on current topical issues, such as:

• Recovery of benefits by undocumented workers;

• Compensability of claims related to terrorist attacks;

• Psychological stress claims;

• Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive-motion injuries;

• Constitutional challenges to recent workers’ compensation “reform” legislation;

• Choice of medical provider;

• Special problems of working at home;

• Employer reimbursement for use of medical marijuana; and

• Exclusivity and the substantial certainty rule.

A Teacher's Manual tracks the structure of the casebook and provides additional pedagogical insight
