Employment Relationship in Workers' Compensation (411)
Independent Study program administered through the offices of the American Educational Institute.
Approximately 17 hours of structured independent study.
Instructional delivery format:
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: discuss the employment relationship as the basic element of workers' compensation; determine which persons qualify for workers' compensation benefits; and discuss how certain types of employees (such as domestics and farm workers) are treated under various state statutes.
Major topics are: employer and employee; multiple employers; company executives as employees; special types of employment. In addition to the AEI produced textbook, students receive actual court decisions, which relate to the subject matter and present real-life court opinions that illustrate how courts have ruled in the past and are likely to rule in the future on important issues in claims. A proctored examination is administered for both levels of the credit recommendation. Scenario and case study-based questions, built around actual claims situations, challenge students to analyze and solve problems using applicable principles of claims law that parallel their own claim files. To broaden students' knowledge of the subject, graded exams are returned with helpful comments that provide a written explanation of why each answer is correct or incorrect. For the graduate level credit recommendation, students also prepare and submit an appropriate graduate level research project on a pre-approved topic or issue, in accordance with AEI's specific guidelines.
