Workers' Compensation Law Update in Colorado

Get familiar with everyday workers' compensation issues in Colorado.

Workers' Compensation (WC) is a complicated and often frightening area that can be difficult to understand for all the parties involved; the injured worker, the employer, physicians, risk managers - even those with only a minimal understanding of what it is. This topic will assist the parties in their understanding of specific and important WC concepts, with a focus on the distribution of vital information as well as the practical application of such knowledge to real-world employment situations. You will become familiar with everyday WC issues and current and long-term strategies for working with the same. It is anticipated that you will leave this topic with a desire to tackle any WC dilemma with a fresh and positive approach.
