Workers' Compensation - Supervisor Training

Author: XpertHR Editorial Team


This training session examines the law and best practices regarding employee injuries suffered in the workplace, illnesses that may result from working and the (primarily) state-specific workers' compensation programs that provide wage replacement and medical benefits to injured or ill employees. This training session also reviews best practices for employers and supervisors insofar as defending against workers' compensation claims and navigating through the claims process.
