About this Episode

Here is the post-webinar audio from our most recent presentation, “Is the Petitioner an Employee?" from our New Jersey workers' compensation webinar training series.

The webinar was presented live by Lois Law Firm partner Joe Jones and associate Angiola DiPopolo and audience questions are addressed such as:

  • “How is 'employment' defined in New Jersey?”
  • “How is the defense of 'Lack of Employment' raised?”
  • “How do the courts define an 'independent contractor' in New Jersey” and
  • “What about 'undocumented' or illegal workers - can they get benefits as a petitioner in a New Jersey workers' compensation claim?”
