Manage the Challenges of Workers' Compensation Human Resources and Employment Law Seminar

In Manage the Challenges of Workers' Compensation you'll learn...

  • How to assess who and what is covered
  • How to correctly handle claims—from injury to return to work
  • How to proceed when ADA, FMLA and workers’ comp overlap
  • How to protect your company from lawsuits
  • And much more!

Having an employee suffer a job-related injury or illness is bad enough …

But the real problems begin when you have to deal with workers’ comp and the confusion it creates. No easy task when laws vary state by state and statutes, court rulings and interpretations constantly change. Add in the fact that each case is uniquely challenging—and you can get into hot water fast.

Like many employers, you may be long on questions and short on answers. Because when an injury occurs on the job, it’s easy to second-guess yourself. Are you sure the injury is covered under the law? What if the injury happened away from your office? Are you sure the person is covered? What about workers who are home-based—or independent contractors? We’ve done the research for you, so you don’t have to spend your valuable time learning by trial and error in an area where you can’t afford any mistakes.

When you return to your office, you’ll be armed with the skills you need to ensure employees are treated fairly and save your company headaches, hassles and liability down the road.
