    Workers' Comp.
    Stay at Work

    Scheduled Webinar
    Tuesday, August 9 
    11A to Noon
    Your Computer

    Presented by Chris Ver Eecke, Return to Work Outreach (Vocational) Specialist, Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.

    The Stay at Work program is a financial incentive for State Fund employers who offer light duty work to injured workers that was introduced in 2011. The payments you receive are not charged to the employer’s Labor and Industries (L&I) account. If you are not using Stay at Work, you are paying for other employers who are. We will review the requirements, benefits, reimbursement procedures, and data of how the program can assist in reducing claim costs.

    What to do When a Workers' Comp. Claim Goes South?

    Scheduled Webinar
    Tuesday, August 23 
    11A to Noon
    Your Computer

    Presented by Janee Cantu of Integrated Claims Management, Inc.

    Gauging the complexity of a claim early on and the role of the claims manager is vital in navigating the claim's process. Does an expanding claim with multiple providers and new medical problems sound familiar? Does extended time loss prolong the claim of an injured worker? Are you seeing poor claim resolution and increased premiums? When is it time to use a workers’ comp attorney? When does it make sense to use the Stay at Work program? You will hear from an experienced third party claims manager who will share practical solutions and answer your questions.
