Overview

Proper management of a workers' compensation claim is essential for minimizing lost time and costs associated with a work related incident. Yet, claims management continues to be a challenge for employers, particularly in the face of recent significant changes to workers' compensation regimes across Canada. This session will review employer’s legal reporting obligations and strategies for managing complex claims. Best practices for addressing common “barriers” with respect to returning injured workers to work will also be discussed.

Specific topics include:

  • What to keep in mind when reporting WSIB/WCB claims
  • Reporting and managing complex claims (i.e. occupational disease claims and traumatic mental stress claims)
  • Best practices for claims management including requirements for re-employment and co-operation, offers of suitable work
  • How to address “barriers” to return to work

Videotaping Policy: During this event, Fasken will be videotaping and broadcasting to a live audience. You may be filmed as part of the audience and seen on screen and in the archived footage.
