This workshop has been approved by the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) for 6 Continuing Education Credits for HR Professionals with the PHR, SPHR designation.
If you are ready to stop injured employees, their attorneys and your adjusters from making settlements your only option, then attending this program is essential.
In an ideal world, employees who have a work related injury would receive appropriate medical treatment, return to work immediately and continue to be contributing, productive members of your team. Reality, most injured employees do not fit into this category – more than 60% view workers compensation as an entitlement.
Injured employees in this category, exaggerate their symptoms; they refuse to cooperate with your efforts to bring them back to work light duty or full duty and they create management challenges for your supervisors.
On top of this, they hire attorneys who help them manipulate the system and force you to the settlement table - only to have a miraculous recovery and move on to the next employer.
As the HR Professional managing these situations on a daily basis, you are caught in a constant struggle to effectively manage injured employees and balance your company's exposure to litigation. It is essential that you know:
How to legally remove malingering employee’s from your workplace before other employee’s follow suit.
What your options are if the employee refuses to accept your light duty job offer.
How to develop and implement proactive injury management policies.
How to balance the urge to terminate the employee against the company’s exposure to ADA, FMLA or other litigation?
How to end the manipulation and return injured employees to work full duty, even if they have an attorney.
Until now, your options were limited to making repeated phone calls to the adjuster or the defense attorney – both of them assure you that this cycle cannot go on forever because a mediation is scheduled and a settlement is in the wind.
Your trusted advisors do not understand your predicament or the dynamics of your company – They can not envision the morale drain this is causing. They do not foresee the avalanche of injuries that will occur if word gets out that you settled this claim. You are caught in the middle with limited options.
Take A Deep Breath - help is on the way. On June 28, 2007, you can end this cycle by attending this information packed Workshop. This Workshop will teach you how to stop injured employee’s from taking over your company. You will learn how to:
1. Manage an injured employee who is – refusing to work despite medical assurances that there is nothing wrong with them.
2. You will learn how to defuse the constant reference to “My Attorney”.
3. Effectively manage the information you receive from your trusted advisors.
4. We will show you how to stop the manipulation before you company is consumed by copy cat injuries.
You will walk away from this program empowered to put the W – back in Work, we will show you how to eliminate the pressure to offer settlements to every injured worker.
