Workers' Compensation

Message from the Chair

Please share:

By Maria Sager

As promised last month, this month we are highlighting the Publications Subcommittee of the Executive Committee of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the California Lawyers Association (CLA).  The Chair of this subcommittee is Jack Goodchild and below please find what Jack had to say about his subcommittee:      

“The Publications Subcommittee oversees supervising and soliciting articles for the Workers’ Compensation Quarterly.  This publication has been published for over thirty years and is probably the most widely distributed publication regarding workers’ compensation issues in the state of California. It is distributed to and read by Judges, Commissioners, attorneys, vendors, and interested parties in our entire state.  Until recently we were lucky to have Attorney Lynn Peterson as it’s editor for thirty years.  The present editor Attorney Randy Pollak has taken the reigns with enthusiasm and a keen eye to taking what was already an exemplary publication and making it even better. The Workers’ Compensation Quarterly covers a wide range of topics of interests to our workers’ compensation community, covering everything from legal issues in our system to related labor law, third party issues, and ancillary systems like the Veterans system.  We look forward to continuing to provide a publication which enlightens and edifies our mutual practices and the parties we serve. As always, we will continue to try to provide a diverse range of perspectives and analysis from all sides of our community. We encourage all readers to consider submitting articles for consideration for publication in future issues.” 

Thank you, Jack for your overview and to you and Randy for all you do for our publication.  Thank you too, Lynn for your thirty years of volunteer service to making this publication what it is today, one of the most respected and relied upon by our workers’ compensation community. 

One of the things I have enjoyed most serving on the Executive Committee of the Workers’ Compensation Section is helping many from our community get published in the Workers’ Compensation Quarterly.  Congratulations to those who have had their articles published.  It is a great sense of accomplishment when this happens.  If you are interested in finding out more about getting published in the Workers’ Compensation Quarterly, please email me at and I am happy to explain the application process to you.  

Until next month when the Membership Subcommittee of the Workers’ Compensation Section will be highlighted.
