      WHAT SIRI HAVE TO SAY ABOUT FLYING THE AMERICAN FLAG UPSIDE DOWN

    At 10:54 AM, Anonymous Injured Worker said the following: “THE WHOLE WORKER COMP SYSTEM IS CRIMINAL from start to finish. When the legislators start representing the people with laws that protect employees & prosecute those that harm & steal, then we’re a civilized country. Even legislators who signed onto the criminal WC as it exists today, especially those that are profiting, should be in jail too. That’s the solution besides exposing all of those who are a part of the criminal enterprise.”

    YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK NO 56 REMEMBER IT DIDN'W START WITH GAS CHAMBERS

     

At 12:23 PM, Linda Ayres of MyWorkCompCoach.com  said the following:  

Injured Workers!

How would you express that as bullet pointed, numbered DEMANDS by Injured Workers? Something like this?

1. Investigate and prosecute government paid civil servants and officials complicit in directly or indirectly causing egregious harm to injured workers and other taxpayers by breach of oath of office?

2. Send in the National Guard to protect injured workers and other tax payers from further egregious harm while dismantling Workers Compensation and related entities, public and private?

3. Immediately establish a Civil Rights Commission dedicated to further investigations of allegations of fraud, collusion and other crimes against humanity?

Anything about getting legit medical care and disability benefits?

How about ways and means to settle existing work comp cases?

How about triage efforts to stop the ‘hemorrhaging’ of newly injured workers?

Does the ‘new immigration reform’ exist to further feed the WorkCompsters and what protections can be demanded to protect the ..500,000,000 new immigrants?

What demands can be made to protect non-English speaking workers?

What demands can be made to ensure proper and competent legal representation without penalties for dismissing idiot attorneys?

What can be demanded about restorations of civil and human rights to all injured Workers?

WHAT DEMANDS CAN BE MADE TO FREE THE WORK COMP HOSTAGES NOW?!?

See these blogs for more ideas.

What about a Global TeleSummit over the next 12 months to include experts from various fields, with Injured Worker Moderators asking the real questions.  Here’s a draft.

I’m learning a new software called INSPIRATION, useful for peeps with Brain Injuries, can take the abstract and drawings in one screen, and covert to a left brain Outline… woo hooo!  Compensatory strategies!   I got a course on “TeleSummits” and I guess they have been around 3 or 4 years.  A TELE SUMMIT CAN OPEN DOORS FOR GOOD VENDORS, AND INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS, AND BRING ABOUT MORE SOLUTIONS AND SOLUTIONS IDEAS FOR THE DEMOLITION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF WORKERS COMPENSATIONs, without the corruption issues that plague the industry today.  Can we all work together?

This is part of an ongoing investigation

Insult to Injury

States nationwide are dismantling workers’ compensation, slashing benefits to injured workers and making it more difficult for them to get care. Meanwhile employers are paying the lowest rates for workers’ comp insurance since the 1970s.

 

How well funded is the WarOnWorkers - ask your stockbroker - FOLLOW THE MONEY

FOLLOW THE MONEY, AND REMEMBER THE WORDS OF DAVID DEPAOLO.

Everyone knows that bad things happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.  So what are YOU going to do about it?”  – Assume Responsibility

WHAT TIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR SURVIVING WORKCOMP?

something is terribly wrong with workers compensation isn't it
.
For those of you who may be puzzled about why and how the WorkComp Industry experts/ mouth pieces /puppets paint images and write stories as they do, OFTEN so very deceptively and dishonestly, here’s a quick reference sheet and update.
.
25 rules of disinformation
 .
LOL…. Yeah, the WorkCompsters and their pals are also including #1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 23 and they are working on 24. Imagine such disgraceful behavior, and attacking an older American with Disabilities –! Their attacks have not been limited to me, but because I blog, I seem to get ‘special attention.’
 .
The #WorkCompsters have ‘armed up’ with propaganda to attempt to mitigate the losses that will no doubt come from the 2015 long investigate report and expose, “INSULT TO INJURY: THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION” by the ProPublica and NPR teams. They didn’t tell all, but they told enough to cause a counter attack, apparently launched this month. STAY ALERT.
 .
I am one of at least 3 national Injured Worker bloggers; the industry claims 22 ‘top blogs’… WE ARE STILL OUT NUMBERED by bloggers BUT THERE ARE MORE Injured Workers than those profiting on our pain and suffering. Do the math. Start a blog. 😀
 
IF ONLY we could find ten or more Injured Worker bloggers…
YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK NO 56 REMEMBER IT DIDN'W START WITH GAS CHAMBERS
Do Not Walk Quietly In This Open Air Auschwitz – #DodgeTheRads  Be sure to also ask about YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK and the call for WarCrimes Trials in the USA
 .
This group may get attacked by cyber-bullies and industry provacteurs, so stay close and make friends other real people in this group, and bring some of your own friends. PLEASE, DO NOT ENGAGE WITH INDUSTRY TROLLS. When they come, smile and ‘sing the troll song’… they hate that!
 .
Search the internet for more info on 25 Rules of Disinformation and 8 Traits of disinformationists, and when you start blogging, expect attacks like the ones I am currently enduring from two of the top mouthpieces for US WorkCompsters.
 .
Here are the industry’s picks of “Best Blogs” for 2016.   Do your own research, draw your own conclusions.  Subscribe and comment and share with your friends and neighbors. There were only dishonorable disparaging remarks about nominated Injured Worker blogs by the representative of the Judges and the industry.
 .
START YOUR OWN BLOG.
 .
Their attacks are quite circus-like, and time wasting, and may even be in violation of attorney code of ethics governing conduct, nevertheless, at first glance, they seem credible and reliable. THEY ARE NOT. FOLLOW THE MONEY… THAT TRAIL NEVER LIES.
carlin circus clowns
.
With friends like you and like LucyOccupy, those bad boyz picked another fight with all of us, didn’t they?
 .
If you don’t know me or my struggles, or that ‘I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORK COMP SURVIVOR’ (nearly 6 months out of the system, with reclaimed Civil Rights and Human Rights)….you can read more at my blogs… and leave your story in the tab, WHAT’S YOUR WORK COMP STORY at MyWorkCompCoach.com
 .
(If you weren’t around Facebook when the Fukushima Triple nuclear meltdowns happened, you may not be familiar with LucyOccupy.com and AskAboutFukushimaNow.com … Heavy reading, still applies today.)
 .
The Battle of Wits with the WorkCompsters has been somewhat documented, and more is expected from their attendees at their Dallas, last week, ‘conference’ and my blogs are in the works.
 .
If you watched CONCUSSION, we’re at the part where the NFL agrees to a fake conference and determines there was no evidence that head banging by NFL players hurt them in any way shape or form. That’s the next plays out of the WorkCompsters, a label they have accepted. (It’s a more polite term for 21st Century Sonderkommando, which they would know, if THEY had read the blogs they mock so mercilessly.)
.
.
Anyhow, here you go… be aware of the Disinformationists and search on YouTube for a 40 minute video, DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCOPATHS. Another good read if you will take up blogging is:
.
The trolls and provocateurs of WorkComp and the ProNukers seem trained out of the same silly and vile playbook. Save the image below to your device. They are big on ‘crazy making schemes.’ It helps to take a deep breath and shun them.
 .
Start building your own database of email addresses…my best email is WorkCompLinda@gmail.com I respond to all private emails, eventually. I’m sort of slow on those matters, but if something is urgent, make it clear in the subject line if you write to me, please and thank you.

WorkComp? Path to Poverty? Road to Hell? DETOUR AHEAD! Did you nominate THIS blog?

Hi and thank you for sharing Your WorkComp Story or inquiry recently.

Some people receiving this specific email may also be Friends of Injured Workers.

If you open this today, and if you’re so moved, feel free to nominate my blogs to the Injured Worker category of the industry BEST BLOGS of 2016 event.  The deadline is today….here’s the link.

Here’s the nominating link. Must be submitted by today to count in the industry events!

Primary Author:                     LINDA AYRES, INJURED WORKER – Disabled, Blogger4Freedom
Reasons for Nomination:     WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW;   One of her mottos is:
                                                   “I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORK COMP SURVIVOR.  BE ONE, TOO”
(Write whatever you like…. you can even say your reason for the nomination is you don’t blog yet, and she does, and she tells it like it is, or….simply say, BECAUSE SHE ASKED A BUNCH OF US TO at the first of the month and again today)!
Your Name:
Your Email:                            [create a NEW email just for your WorkComp ‘media’ work…
Your Telephone:                   [your call…looks like a required field]
Your Employer:                    [I put “Disabled, Blogger4Freedom on the nominations I made]

Bottom line, we all know the horrors and atrocities of WorkComp and we all want solutions for the Common Good, one person at a time.

If you haven’t shared YOUR WorkComp Story yet, here’s the questionnaire link again:

What’s YOUR WorkComp Story?

As you probably realize, I am a WorkComp Survivor….. brain injury sustained 1/9/12….. “I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR.”

The parties in my case “reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement” and since I know what I know, I cannot just walk away.  I will do what I can to incite more discussions on the real and horrific issues that every Injured Worker in America, in Canada and Australia face….. for starters.

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW……   As individual cases are resolved, each win is a win for us all.  I was told repeatedly, by professional friends, “GET OUT OF THE WORK COMP SYSTEM BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  IT WILL KILL YOU.”

Easier said than done, particularly with a brain injury.   The stories I have received via email and by phone make my situation look more like a “walk in the park” comparatively!  I am so sorry for the pain and suffering you still endure.   All together, we’ll find a way out of this, kicking and screaming, occupying virtually, and dodging the rads.

Below is a copy of a post on LinkedIn.  That’s where the INFLUENCERS ARE.   If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, consider getting one immediately.

You may also seriously consider a Facebook PAGE (use WorkComp or Injured Worker in the name) and Twitter account and a fresh gmail or email account….include WorkComp or InjuredWorker in your user names, along with Pinterest.

Most importantly, A BLOG from which to document and tell your own story.

KEEP IT SEPARATE FROM YOUR PERSONAL EMAILS AND PERSONAL LIFE.  USE IT AS A MICROPHONE….


Speak to the influencers in WorkComp and in your Industry.  We’ll talk more about how to build your own database and sphere of influence.

If YOU are UNABLE to do these things, enlist a friend, family member or neighbor to help you.  PEOPLE WILL HELP, IF YOU ASK CLEARLY AND SPECIFICALLY…… from a point of power, not victim-hoood, nor from learned helplessness.

If you have an attorney, you might check for counsel on these suggestions.  I know of but few attorneys who have actually protected their clients, and secured medical care and moved toward resolution.

I am working on mastering either Mail Chimp or GoDaddy’s email campaigns to better stay in touch with each of you, and those to join us.  Till I figure out how to use the email campaigns, if you don’t want to receive further emails, please simply hit REPLY and put REMOVE FROM LIST in the subject line, thank you.  (If you know how to easily use Mail Chimp, please please put it in writing so we can all learn….and maximize impact!)

For now, we’ll simply stick with BLOGS,  E-mails and BCC copies.  Build you own database, and create your own mailing list, too.  We Work Like Ants!  Remember that.


I know of only 3 Injured Worker Blogs……the industry has many, and they annually recognize their Top 25.  Does that tell you that injured workers that DO NOT have blogs are essentially “unarmed” in the fight for their lives?  That’s what it tells me.  Vlogs count.  Podcasts count! Webinars Count.  eCourses count. Phone calls count. Posts count. Pins count. Tweets count.  The fire-power is in the BLOG.

do no harm but take no shit either

Quick story…. a doctor, in 2013, suggested that since I was blogging about the Fukushima nuclear disaster pre-injury, that it might help me to “write about” my WorkComp experiences.  I thought the doctor meant BLOG ABOUT IT, that’s what I heard.

 

I was afraid.  I used to be extremely brilliant, and I was afraid that people would know about and judge my ‘cognitive deficits’ but I wrote anyway.  

 

I tip-toed around about it.  When I finally realized that “OMG.  My LIFE IS AT STAKE HERE!!” is when I began to blog openly and without fear or caution.  

 

In the group, NAIDW.org – National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers – in one group, an injured law enforcement guy told us all that we needed to start “naming names” and I thought, “Oh! Yikes.  Ok, if you say so!” so I listed all the doctors I had seen to date, by name, with diagnosis etc……  the rest is what it is! 

We have received a few stories that apparently were not submitted to the ProPublica/NPR investigative reporters last year, or were not selected.

If you have not read the series last year, you must.  It has rattled the cages of WorkCompsters, and momentum is building….and you can be assured that the WorkCompsters will do everything possible, “by any means necessary” to ensure their billlions of dollar profits are not impacted by the bad news reaching the public about WorkComp practices.

Google it:  Insult to Injury:  The Demolition of Workers Compensation

Most all Injured Workers indicate a willingness to share, Anonymously.  OK…..We’ll be creative. Watch and FOLLOW/SUBSCRIBE both blogs, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com

and MyWorkCompCoach.com

Focus on what you realllly reallly want and need to get out from under the oppression and destruction of Workers Compensation, plan to share further on that.

It’s not about money—-it’s about your health, your life and your ability to survive and compensate for your injuries and disabilities.   BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT; the Universe tends to meet our exact expectations.

ps…. I was nominated and selected as one of the top 4 finalists at the WorkCompCentral CompLaude Awards event in 2014.  I met several very nice people at that event, and I ‘crashed’ a few other industry conferences and collected some business cards and marketing materials and others, and I was also invited as a guest of a Judge to visit the Exhibit Hall of the California Applicant Attorney’s Association Winter 2014 conference, where I met more wonderful people. In 2016 I was invite by a kind attorney to attend their Winter Conference, anniversary gala celebrating ’50 or 60 years of protecting injured workers’ [That’s questionable!]
.
 .
Anyhow, CAAA made it clear that NO INJURED WORKERS ARE WELCOME AT ANY OF THEIR EVENTS, so I accepted a dis-invitation to the event….  You know the ol sayings…”Something is terribly wrong in this country….”  and  ‘We do not forgive; We do not forget….EXPECT US.”
I have tried to encourage these groups to open their hearts and doors to Injured Workers, with little success. WorkComp Central, to date, is the only group I have found that embraces Injured Workers and warmly welcomes them. To save some time and energy, I will copy also the people on that email list, so that perhaps we can forge some links over the chasms of “us and them” and …. dunno, might make this a blog, too…..
.
For the people in the WorkComp industries, we will be organizing some interviews and a possible TELE-SUMMIT to share your perspective on what needs to happen for immediate WORKCOMP TRANSFORMATION…short of ‘SENDING IN THE NATIONAL GUARD’ to protect injured workers from the current systems.   WATCH THE BLOGS FOR COMING SOON DETAILS…. EXPECT US.

WorkComp? Path to Poverty? Road to Hell? DETOUR AHEAD! Did you nominate THIS blog?     http://workerscompensation.com/workers_comp_best_blogs.php


Did you nominate THIS BLOG for the Best Blogs of WorkComp for 2016 – Injured Worker Category?!?

THANK YOU!   WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW!

…. subcategories of National Issues, Legal, Regional/State Specific, Settlements….  !   #Blog4Freedom!

Did you nominate THIS blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains, for the Best Blogs event by WorkersCompensation.com yet?  Thanks!    It’s been a public service blog since Summer of 2013.  It even includes some scattered resources that will be reformatted into a better directory this year.

Here’s the nominating link. Must be submitted by today to count in the industry events! 

 

 

ARE YOU BLOGGING YET?!!!  #Blog4Freedom!   Fight Censorship!  Fight Industry Propaganda Machinery and Disinformation!

KEEP IT REAL!  Remember Remember!  We Are The Media Now – WHAT IS, IS!!!!

Injured Worker Resources …… add to it! We Are The Media Now.

 

PROOF IS IN THE RESULTS, HUH?  “The parties reached resolution subject to confidentiality agreement.”

#Blog4TheCure!  #Blog4Freedom!  March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.  Got Brains? #DodgeTheRads2

                 Brain Injury – BEFORE and AFTER WorkComp

Ask also about Opiate Traffic and “Failed Surgeries” then FOLLOW THE MONEY! 

Ask about a WorkComp Insurance plan that could provide “immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care” where doctors are screened for “Angel of Death” characteristics and set up a FRAUD/CRIME HOTLINE directly to DOJ for Injured Workers to contact in the event of suspected fraud, collusion and worse. 

Equip all Injured Workers with a Livescribe Pen (iPhone & Android adaptable) to RECORD ALL MEDICAL/LEGAL EVALUATIONS AND HEARINGS, with a designated DOJ address to submit recordings of suspicious events.  It would save dollars on the SS-type wasteful ’employee surveillance’ procedures used also to deny medical care. Cops and Firefighters find them reprehensible, too!

Make sure your LTD policy is not just a money-fronting scam that tries to confiscate any retro-pay when costs are shifted to SSA.  Injured Workers refer to the practice as “MAGIC MATH” where insurance companies are relieved of any and all risks, and risks and costs are shifted anywhere else but to the carriers. 

Right now, in the USA and elsewhere, Injured Workers have essentially NO PROTECTION from anywhere. What a shame!!!

If you’re afflicted by WorkComp maladies, or know someone who is, check with your State Senator and if it has escalated to embrace SSA, check with your Congressional Representative for help. 

Remember the October 2015 letter from Federal Lawmakers offering law enforcement assistance.  Pass it on to your own representatives, too, and to your friends and neighbors, along with the response from Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez.  You can find those links also in this blog:

Did you nominate THIS BLOG for the Best Blogs of WorkComp for 2016 – Injured Worker Category?!?

 

WORKCOMP MUST CHANGE NOW.  Do not expect the highly profitable industries to change because it’s the right thing to do. That is contrary to their playbook of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

Before social media, the ‘dirty little secrets’ were well kept. WE, THE PEOPLE, DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.

The industry apparently needs law enforcement encouragement.

Send in the National Guard and ensure they have a seat at the upcoming ‘secret’ National Discussions in ‘the Heartland.’ 

Then let’s have some open webinar summits and take it to the Virtual Streets!   #OccupyVirtually!  #DodgeTheRads!  You know why!

Have a nice day, and be sure to VOTE for ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS and MY WORKCOMP COACH.

 

Did you nominate THIS up and the coming blog,MyWorkCompCoach.com ???  Thanks!  WE AIM TO PLEASE!

“If I was an injured worker at home wondering how I would pay my bills, I would be sick to see this,” said one insurance company manager who asked not to be named…”

“A top manager for a major insurance company recalled standing amid the hoopla a few years back when a company CEO turned to her and marveled: “All of this because somebody got hurt at work.”

“This year, there were conferences in 104 cities in 41 states — more places than in the country song, “I’ve Been Everywhere.” One hotel, the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, hosted three workers’ comp conferences in 2015…”

“Highlighting the bounty, there are now more than 150 workers’ comp conferences a year. There’s one for the American Society of Workers Comp Professionals, one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Professionals and one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Claims Professionals. At least 26 have golf tournaments.”

At the national workers’ comp and disability expo, vendors gave away Apple watches, bottles of bourbon, and a Vespa scooter. There were free massages and shoeshines, a superhero caricature artist, more than one mentalist, and a live alligator named Spike.

“But over the past two decades, a cottage industry of middlemen has emerged, which some have dubbed the “workers’ comp industrial complex.”

AN INJURED WORKER COMMENTS:

Some people can work 45-50 years without knowing a thing about WorkComp….Count me amongst the ‘madder than hell’ members of the Working Class, disabled by WC!  Do you see what injured workers see?!!!

IE: One icy slip and fall backwards on ice and boom….there went another life. Did you see “Concussion”?  Football players are yes, Injured Workers!  How about the soldiers returning from Central Asia with brain injuries, radiation poisoning and missing limbs?  Do we have your attention yet, Americans?

Labor Secretaray Tom Perez Civil Rights

Let’s open the doors of all the fancy conferences to the Injured Worker Community…. perhaps a part of the admission…. BRING AN INJURED WORKER to listen to the panels, and walk the exhibit halls and collect data and meet real people,  and yes, break bread with the folks profiting  ‘Because someone got hurt at work.’

Include panels of Injured Workers at every event…you’ll realize then that we are not numbers…we are human beings, being destroyed for the profits of the few.  You could be next.

OccupyVirtuall! 99%
OccupyVirtually! 99%

#OccupyVirtually…. save the expense and use it for medical care to actually treat injured workers, vs evaluations upon evaluations to deny medical care.

Heck, invite local politicians, or members of their field staffs to see first hand what’s really happening in WorkComp industries to their constituents.

Critical in California, and everywhere else!  Be sure to include reps from EDD and SSA… Involve the LTD carriers, too.  Bring all those who profit ‘because somebody got injured at work.’

Invite the Salvation Army to share how they help Injured Workers when the WC system is an Epic Fail.  Who else helps injured workers survive the system?  Legal Aid?  Houses of Worship?

C’mon America!  Lives are being destroyed.  We do not have the right to remain silent. ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”….  Simple and Easy:  1. Demolition  2. Trials and Consequences 3. Rebuilt on legit foundations …. nice and legal and American-like.  Ditch the secret tribunal type practices immediately.

Demolition of Workers' Comp

If there’s no solution, demand complete and immediate DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION and necessary trials.  Remember, there are now 11 Congressional representatives on record as being concerned and alarmed about WorkComp in America…. and one is even expressly concerned about Injured Nuclear Workers!  Pssssst, #DodgeTheRads!  It’s dangerous out there, America!  (That’s a matter for more Congressional Investigations, wouldn’t you agree?)

Draw the line at involving IW’s in the post-daily-event drink-a-thons. Opiates and alcohol are not a good combo, and most IW’s are seriously drugged as part of ‘treatment’ to keep noise levels down?

[Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup of The Soul fame says 2016 will be all about ‘SOBER IS SEXY’ and has apparently written a book to show you how to be it in 30 days! ”

In 2016, Sober will be the New Successful

Jack (Canfield, not Daniels!) says: “What’s more, those generalized “aches and pains” start lessening, as does that sense of feeling lousy. “Brain fog” significantly decreases, helping you make better, more forward-thinking decisions. “- See more at: http://jackcanfield.com/in-2016-sober-will-be-the-new-successful/

ONE DAY AT A TIME, PEEPS…. God, grants us the Serenity to Accept the Things We Cannot Change, The Courage to Change Those Things We Can, and the WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.  Remember remember: “God gave you a brain to use.”   THINK THINK THINK ]

All others, check out www.aa.org  or look for “Friends of Bill W” sessions at your conferences…..  surely there are some sober people attending! Find them!

Invite panels of Injured Workers to speak on the true atrocities of this highly profitable industry, which destroys the lives of all but the least injured workers.  Remember remember… today’s able bodied worker is at risk of becoming tomorrow’s injured worker….and another casualty of the system.

It’s time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW.

What we need are greater numbers of InjuredWorker bloggers, so you, too, can know the truth.  Let’s aim to see “Injured Workers Associations”  in EVERY STATE IN THE UNION…. FOR STARTERS…   We’ll rate the providers as we help one another survive a system that aims to do only harm to injured workers.

As Cicero said long ago… “A NATION CANNOT SURVIVE TREASON FROM WITHIN….”

Work Comp Dreams – CompLaude Awards – Civil Rights and Human Rights for Injured Workers Now

 

Bravo David DePaolo! “WE SHALL OVERCOME, SOMEDAY”

Thank you to you, your team and your colleagues! Have a wonderful Gala!


 

“We just need to come to a collective understanding of why things are the way they are.”

 

“It is my hope that we will, with Comp Laude, eventually help shape policy for the future that benefits all of society.”

 

“It’s a big mission and a big risk.”

Allow me to start a few rumors here and there!

social media transformations

Have you heard that 2016 CompLaude Awards will expand the international scope, and part of the price of exhibiting next year will be for each vendor to SPONSOR AND BRING AN INJURED WORKER to the event?

More of the rumor suggested that a portion of all entrance fees will be allocated for additional sponsorship of Injured Workers, across the USA, from Canada, from the UK, and from Australia, for starters to ensure a wide attendance from the Injured Worker populations. Will there really be injured workers from around the world attending WorkCompCentral’s CompLaude Awards?

More of the rumors suggest that a social media group called “COMP LAUDE 2016” will encourage Injured Workers to join–on LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Circles and more. Some say there will be a swath of Social Media Groups like CompLaude – California, CompLaude -New York, CompLaude – Florida, CompLaude USA, CompLaude Canada, CompLaude UK, CompLaude Australia, CompLaude Japan

Remember Remember Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Workers
Remember Remember Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Workers… since 3.11.11

Some more law-oriented groups are said to be planning WorkCompCongressional Letters groups, state by state, channeling information to a Congressional Task Force on Workers Compensation in the USA. Canada, UK and Australia will do similar ‘virtual events.’

During the coming year, those who profit by the WorkComp industries can be proactive and get to know what really happens to Injured Workers, at least in America, for starters, in these virtual groups. There will be an increase in attendance at the various industry ‘conferences’ (at all those swanky joints!) by an outreach to the Injured Workers in each state.

The InProPer population of Injured Workers needs further investigation by the various state Bars. Exit interviews will be conducted at Settlement Hearings, and fees for attorneys who do their jobs and properly represent injured workers will be rewarded with increased fees, while those attorneys who fail their clients will forfeit blanket liens, and will stand in line with other lien holders. Injured Workers seldom “choose” to self-represent, but do so after multiple failures in retaining competent legal counsel.

The biggest rumor of all is that a Congressional Task Force, including members from the Department of Labor, Department of Justice and WorkComp commissions, along with EEOC, EDD, SSA and ADA will commence investigations in every state of the land, and go beyond “studies” to solutions! WorkComp Congressional Letters will become household words!

No discussion in America about Workers’ Compensation is complete without reference to the ProPublica/NPR series: The Demolition of Workers’ Compensation. 

Bravo to those teams as well! And to the courageous injured workers who did not remain silent!

The truth is ugly indeed.   May all people remember that, as Dr. Martin Luther King reminded us, ‘Everything Hitler did in Germany was legal’ …. Till Nuremburg.

While the parties in my case ‘have reached resolution, subject to a confidentiality agreement’ — circumstances make it impossible for me to attend the Gala this year. I will be there in spirit, and virtually, because…

I am delighted to have learned that some of my nominees made it to the semi-finals and finals! It was not easy coming up with nominees for this event, not easy at all!

In the new year, I hope to offer a course on Udemy.com called SURVIVING WORK COMP, with an audience of ‘all workers everywhere.’    WorkComp has facilitated an opportunity for me to learn more about social media, and I am learning to make videos.  Here’s one….   Your Radiation This Week 1 – 30 A Silent Video  (Less than 7 minutes; better next time!)

I made it more than 45 years of working for a few very powerful captains of industry, real estate and timeshare, without experiencing the tragic consequences of a work injury in California –until 2012. Over the course, I have been able to speak with many ‘industry experts’ and with many egregiously harmed injured workers across the nation and beyond.

What I know for sure is: The only sure way for a worker to survive WorkComp unharmed is NEVER GET INJURED ON THE JOB.

I will look forward to reading about the 2015 CompLaude Award Winners along with the DePaolo State of WorkComp.

Peace and blessings to you and yours!
