Chris Frost leads Swanson, Thomas, Coon & Newton’s workers’ compensation practice area for people with on-the-job injuries. Along with representing injured workers in workers’ compensation cases, Chris Frost has been involved in a few projects we wanted to share with you.

Chris Frost has been working with vocational counselors to draft a bill that allows injured workers to get additional time loss benefits up to 21 months for vocational programs, up from 16 months.

She also participated in a Jobs with Justice Worker’s Rights Board gathering to welcome new executive director Karly Edwards and say good-bye to Margaret Butler who is stepping down after 16 years. Jobs with Justice (JwJ) is a league of labor organizations and community groups that have come together to fight for and protect workers’ rights and economic justice.
