Sullivan on Comp Supports Save the Rhino

Posted by Michael W. Sullivan on Jun 27, 2017 4:58:08 PM

A portion of all sales of Sullivan on Comp are donated to Save the Rhino International, a charitable organization dedicated to stopping the poaching of rhinos worldwide.

In 1970, a rhino poaching epidemic began that was to hit black rhino populations severely. The crisis continued to deplete populations right through to the late 1980s and early 1990s, so much so that by 1993, there were only 2,475 black rhinos left in the world.

At the start of the 1990s, rhino enthusiasts Dave Stirling and Johnny Roberts took themselves on a 'Rhino Scramble' across Africa, raising money to help the fencing of the Aberdare Rhino Sanctuary and meeting a wide range of rhino conservationists along the way. While traveling, they met Rob Brett, Kenyan Rhino Coordinator at the time, and started to talk about what they could do for rhinos.

Filled with inspiration from their journey, the two returned to the UK and set about raising funds for rhinos in Africa. They started with the infamous and ever-growing London Marathon, roping in friends to run the 26.2 mile course around central London in 1992.

Posted by Michael W. Sullivan on May 31, 2017 11:48:54 AM

Join us for the live SOC Webinar 2nd Quarter Update - 2017

Apportionment to Genetic Factors and Immutable Characteristics: The Rice Case and its Implications

Part 1: Psychiatric Claims

Author of Sullivan on Comp and workers' compensation attorney Michael Sullivan, together with defense attorney Jake Jacobsmeyer of Shaw Jacobsmeyer Crain & Claffey, applicants’ attorney Julius Young of Boxer Gerson LLP and Kieran Sullivan, Ph.D Psychology Professor at Santa Clara University, will discuss the case City of Jackson v. WCAB (Rice) and its implications.

This case found that apportionment to genetic factors is appropriate under the law. In this Part 1 of the webinar, the discussion will focus first on the case and its implications, then on key psychiatric studies that could potentially be brought to bear in this context.

(This presentation will focus on psychiatric injuries; a subsequent webinar (to be scheduled shortly) will focus on orthopedic and internal claims.)

Sullivan on Comp is Moving to Its Own Platform on February 1st!

Posted by Michael W. Sullivan on Jan 10, 2017 2:41:34 PM

Starting February 1st, "Sullivan on Comp," currently hosted on WorkCompCentral.com, will be hosted right here on SullivanOnComp.com.

Other than a new location, very little will change. You will have:

  • the same expiration/renewal date,

  • the same renewal date and book replacement schedule.

Corporate subscribers will receive replacement desktop icons. (Until then, current ones will work by forwarding you to this site as an already-authorized user.)

And, if you are also a WorkCompCentral subscriber, you’ll be able to go back and forth between SOC and WorkCompCentral.com with a single click, while staying logged in to both.


FAQs
