HR's Workers' Comp Management Update: New Laws, Rules And Ways To Reduce Risk
|Date / Time:
Tough economic times have forced many insurance carriers to lay off significant portions of their claims staff. As a result, the risk of mishandled claims has skyrocketed, which means you must be much more proactive in monitoring your open claims.
Having a solid framework for understanding how the workers' compensation system works and for implementing its requirements correctly is essential. If you fail in either of these areas, you could become a prime target for fraudulent claims, lawsuits, or even government-issued compliance penalties.
HR professionals are asking themselves these questions and more as they struggle to deal with complicated workers' comp regulations.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Workers' comp law basics that affect your day-to-day practices
- Where to get important information about your state's specific laws

- Light duty requirements for off-the-job injuries
- How to effectively work with treating physicians and insurance carriers to get your employees back to work as soon as possible

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
