Today, November 18, 2016, is the third Friday of the month. In New York Workers’ Compensation, it is the only non-holiday in which no hearings are held through the entire State. So on that day, we present to you Third Fridays, a legal podcast – also available in video format – that aims to discuss high-level issues in Workers’ Compensation. I will host and moderate a discussion involving a special guest, and our hope is that you gain insight into practical and procedural routes to close your cases.
The podcast’s debut episode will solely be about opioids, a far-reaching problem experienced by all states. If you have a question about opioids, submit it via email to me at email@example.com! We will incorporate your question into the discussion.
Third Fridays will premiere on December 16, 2016. Before you take your extended holiday vacation, give it a listen or a viewing. You will also learn how to become eligible to win a free iPad mini!
