In 1983, Dr. Victor founded the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) in Cambridge, MA and directed its growth until 2016. WCRI has become the premier international source of objective information on workers’ compensation public policy issues. Its studies are regularly used in legislative and regulatory proceedings and the lessons of those studies influence real-world decisions. In addition to his leadership and management responsibilities, Dr. Victor testifies before public bodies, consults with state and federal agencies, and speaks about workers’ compensation issues before business and labor audiences. He earned his Ph.D in economics and J.D. degrees at the University of Michigan where he was the George Humphrey Fellow in Law and Economic Policy. After graduate school, he spent 7 years at The Rand Corporation, where he conducted studies of the impact of regulation and liability rules.
