The vast majority of claims for workers' compensation benefits are legitimate, and warrant benefits payments.  Occasionally, however, most employers will face questionable claims for workers' compensation benefits filed by employees who exaggerate their injuries and unnecessarily delay their return to the workforce.  These questionable claims are exceptionally frustrating, particularly because many employers believe that states’ workers’ compensation divisions/commissions make it easy for employees to "game the system."  Fortunately, employers who devote the appropriate time and resources to defending questionable claims for workers’ compensation benefits can regularly eliminate or reduce the exposure those claims pose.  This webinar covers ten critical steps employers can take to more effectively defend questionable claims for workers' compensation benefits.
