Are you confused by the complexities of workers' comp? For HR professionals, the field of workers’ compensation has been a source of great mystery (and headaches). As workers’ compensation law remains very complex, and the claims adjudication process often coincides with the disability interactive process, statutory leaves, and employee compensation, HR professionals must master the key elements of workers’ comp to adequately perform all of the functions in HR.
With so many grey areas, it can be difficult to stay on top of the ever-changing rules and regulations surrounding workers' compensation. It is also an area in which many organizations inadvertently overspend, as workers' compensation costs continue to climb sky-high. Controlling workers' comp costs is one of the most significant ways to free up resources from your organization’s budget, maintain productivity, and ensure that your organization stays out of legal hot water.
Train with CalGovHR and RTGR Law LLP to master the key elements of workers’ comp to adequately perform all of the functions in HR on Sept. 12, 2019 in Oakland, and learn from two acclaimed workers’ compensation attorneys and specialists, Thomas A. Richard and William J. Armstrong, on practical tools and strategies to proactively address potentially volatile situations and problems before they turn in to costly claims. You will also learn how to navigate through California workers' compensation laws and discover how to confront the "Bermuda Triangle" — the complex ways in which workers' comp, FMLA/CFRA, and ADA/FEHA regulations overlap. In addition, the instructors will offer their insights on the complexities of workers' compensation laws and help you safely and legally manage claims, implement cost-cutting strategies, and utilize industry best practices.
Additionally, this training will also address the importance of workers' compensation in connection with the key principles of California human resources management, including: the duty to engage in a good-faith interactive process during the pendency of workers’ comp adjudication, public safety workers’ compensation leaves and “4850 time”, leaves administration, employee benefits, labor relations, stress claims, significant injury and death cases, utilizing C&R's to achieve successful employment outcomes, the interplay between California Labor Code section 132a and ADA/FEHA claims, the importance of the “good faith personnel action” defense, and tips and strategies on combating workers’ comp fraud through sound investigative and disciplinary practices.
From risk managers to HR professionals, everyone must become a stakeholder in this important area affecting your organization. Come prepared with your toughest scenarios, and walk away with practical tips and strategies to effectively manage HR/workers’ compensation “hybrid” matters as a competent professional! Immediately following the class, attendees are invited to join CalGovHR’s President, Gene Boucher, for an evening networking reception (optional) honoring RTGR Law, LLP and celebrating its recent merger with the Armstrong Law Firm, as well as the expansion of RTGR Law’s South Bay practice.
