The 2-day event opens with a screening and panel discussion of a film about the mining industry in the Upper Peninsula titled 1913 Massacre. A daylong symposium will feature eight national experts on workers’ compensation.

Workers’ Compensation Agency Director Kevin Eisenheimer says comp laws represented the nation’s first social legislation. “The [Michigan] law was created to protect workers as the economy shifted from agricultural to industrial and will likely evolve in the future with changing work conditions of millennials, the generation born in late 1970s and later,” he adds.

A 2011 law reformed the Michigan workers’ compensation system, which the state says will keep prices down for employers and give employers a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining business.
