Injuries In The Workplace: Practical Tips and Policy Advice to Assist Employers Managing Employees with Preexisting Injuries And Other Disability Accommodation Issues
|Date / Time:
This webinar explores the most common issues that employers of all sizes face in dealing with employees (and prospective employees) who have preexisting injuries, are injured on the job, or who require an accommodation for an injury or disability that is not job-related. This live webinar will also explore how company liability can be limited through prior planning and proactive policy implementation.

|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.
