About This Course:
In this webinar we will address many of the difficult issues that arise when considering whether to discipline or terminate an employee who is also a workers' compensation claimant.

You will learn the core concepts underpinning workers' compensation statutes and the primary types of anti-retaliation provisions found in workers' compensation statutes. Examine the steps you can take when disciplining or terminating a workers' compensation claimant to avoid allegations of retaliation and, if such a claim is raised, to defeat it.
