As we grapple with the things we dislike about the workers compensation system, outside forces are chipping away at our bronze coating and creating new standards for adjusters and industry stakeholders.

Is our hate for the system or contentment with the status quo overshadowing our understanding of the new exposure?

What are the new exposures?

  • Employment Litigation spinning out of the workers’ compensation claim
  • ADA
  • FMLA
  • Retaliatory Discharge – EEOC Complaints

From a historical prospective, the workers compensation system has operated on an autonomous, self-fulfilling island: Employees are injured, we provide them with lost wages, medical treatment and – hopefully – they return to work.

But today, we have new demands – ADA accommodation, layoffs, claims of retaliatory discharge – how are employers suppose to navigate the new exposures without letting the systemic issue in the workers comp system prevent them from making prudent employment decisions.

This webcast will explore the dynamics of injury management in the age of spin-off litigation.
