Workers' Compensation And Disability Benefits: The Effect Of The Permanent Partial Disability Multiplier And Settlement Method On Back Injury Claims In The State Of Tennessee, Eric Allan Fenstemaker

Doctoral Dissertations

Back pain is the leading cause of work place disability in Tennessee.

The workers' compensation system in Tennessee is a court ...

The Moral Agency Of Family And Consumer Sciences Teacher Candidates: A Grounded Theory, Enas O. Sarour
