Webinar: ID# 1014384
Recorded CD
About This Course:
This webinar explores the most common issues that employers of all sizes face in dealing with employees (and prospective employees) who have preexisting injuries, are injured on the job, or who require an accommodation for an injury or disability that is not job-related. This live webinar will also explore how company liability can be limited through prior planning and proactive policy implementation.

There is no amount of prior planning or safety protocols that can completely eliminate injuries and disabilities from the workforce, and employers who are faced with these issues need to have the tools to make informed decisions and limit company liability.
