Readers, if you are in Boston on January 27 at noon , come to the Boston Bar Association for a presentation I’m giving with Alan Pierce titled Foreign Sovereign Immunity and Locally Employed Staff: the Massachusetts Example. We’re going to talk about the Merlini case, the case in which a clerical worker at a foreign consulate had a workplace injury and the foreign government had not purchased a Massachusetts workers’ compensation policy. What are the implications for workers’ compensation, of course, but also, what are the implications for foreign governments’ employment policies in the United States? And what do the auspices show about Canada’s expected petition for a writ of certiorari? It would be great to see you there!
