Schag Talks on Employer Liability


At the 11th Annual Midwest Asbestos Litigation Conference held in St. Louis on September 19, Heyl Royster shareholder Mike Schag engaged in a point-counterpoint style discussion on how Illinois workers’ compensation exclusivity doctrine applies in the post-Folta environment following a recent statutory amendment. He also contrasted the doctrine’s application under Missouri law and discussed potential pathways for the settlement of tort-based lawsuits in both states.
