This is the PDF (Adobe Acrobat) version of “Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Law – 2020 Edition” by Gregory Lois. This is the “Go To” Handbook for Defending Longshore and Defense Base Act Claims.
This book covers the basics of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act with references to the LHWCA, practical tips for defending claims brought under the Act, and review of recent relevant case law.
This is also a Defense Base Act Practical Guide.
This book covers the differences between the LHWCA and the Defense Base Act, as well as provides a practical guide to defending DBA claims brought by employees doing public work overseas, including government-related construction projects, work connected with the national defense, or employment under a service contract supporting either activity. This handbook discusses working abroad both in- and out- of the “zone of special danger” and provides practical guidance to risk professionals.
