Workers' Compensation: Navigating Return to Work, Balancing Legal Considerations, and Controlling Costs - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to legally navigate return-to-work issues and control workers compensation costs.


According to the National Safety Council and the National Council on Compensation Insurance, a single lost-time workers’ compensation claim costs a business over $40,000. OSHA enforcement risks might fluctuate with agency priorities, but a costly lost-time injury can occur at any time.

And, the direct costs of lost-time injuries are just the beginning; absenteeism, lost productivity, higher premiums, overtime, and training of replacement employees can all combine to greatly magnify the impact of a workplace injury. Getting workers’ compensation costs under control requires a multi-pronged approach that incorporates a strong safety program, effectively uses light-duty to get injured employees back on the job and balances the intertwined legal obligations under state workers’ compensation laws, the FMLA, the ADA, OSHA, and more.

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorney Don Dressler for tips on how to legally navigate return to work issues and control workers’ compensation costs.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Develop and implement effective return-to-work policies that get employees back on the job while protecting health and safety
  • Identify best practices for proactively managing safety to lower workers’ compensation costs
  • Determine when an employee injured on the job may be eligible for ADA accommodations
  • Balance the interplay of workers’ compensation requirements with FMLA, OSHA regulations, and other legal obligations
