Workplace accidents are terrible for your employees. But it's the aftermath of these accidents that impacts YOUR work. From investigating mishaps to managing claims … dealing with lawyers to returning the injured employee to work... and more, the workers' comp process can be as harmful to your company as the original accident was to your employee.

To help you manage EVERY facet of workers' compensation, THE HR SPECIALIST has teamed up with a top WC attorney and an insurance claims expert to make sure you understand the legal, financial, insurance AND employee-relations aspects of workers' comp in a unique webinar.
