Providing a straightforward exposition of the principles enunciated by the Missouri appellate courts that have construed the law, Workers' Compensation Law and Practice
is a ready and efficient reference to both the major provisions and subtle nuances of the Workers' Compensation Law of Missouri (V.A.M.S. Chapter 287). It describes major issues, such as:
- The Second Injury Fund
- The employment relationship
- Affirmative defenses
- Injuries, accidents, and occupational diseases
Whenever possible, the footnotes include up to two citations to opinions of the Missouri Supreme Court, and up to three citations to opinions of the various districts of the Missouri Court of Appeals. The text includes a Table of Statutes, a Table of Rules and Regulations, a Table of Cases, and an index for efficient research.
