Workers spend a great deal of time preparing for court and presenting evidence in court proceedings. Very frequently, the worker does not know what specific information the judge or referee needs in order to make a specific finding or ruling. This program will address this deficiency. Further, judges have many different perspectives on how they would like workers to testify, but some general guidelines can be presented based on feedback from a number of practicing judges. This program will present a summary of “do’s and don’ts” for Michigan judges. Finally, this program will seek to enable workers to more effectively present their position to ensure that judges understand the workers’ reasoning and recommendations.
