Workers' Compensation: Return-to-Work Issues


Gain the blueprint on how to establish a comprehensive workers' compensation program.

Injuries are not planned. The severity level of injuries can range from minor to life-threatening. It is in the best interest of both the employee and the employer to work together to find the best outcome after a work-related injury. This webinar offers a blueprint on how to establish a comprehensive workers' compensation program. We begin with strategies on how to reduce work accidents. For employers, fewer claims equal lower workers' compensation premiums. Next, we offer steps on how to manage injuries when they occur, from investigation to claims management, and how to prepare for potential litigation. We will conclude with a discussion on how to work with an employee following an injury to successfully reintegrate them into the workforce through the use of early return-to-work programs and rehabilitation.
