Workers' compensation can be daunting to anyone newly assigned to this area - or for someone who may have to wear multiple hats and just not be able to focus in on maximizing their workers' comp processes and programs.
Consider, for instance, just a few of the tasks/responsibilities associated with managing your workers' comp program: accommodations, restrictions, working with doctors, return to work, managing claims, dealing with your workers' comp insurer, and more!
If you have workers' comp responsibilities at your workplace, but are unsure of how the process works - or are overwhelmed by the sheer number of tasks associated with it - you may need some help to simplify things and help you get the basic time- and cost-savings processes in place.Learning Objectives
