Employers often ‘Don’t Know What They Don’t Know’ About L& I — and not knowing affects not only their bottom line costs but may keep them from earning up to $10,000 back from L&I by bringing an injured worker back to a light duty or modified position.
Business owners need to know how to control worker’s comp premiums before their premiums begin to increase. If you have one or more employees, this overview of how your safety program and injured worker claims management can keep your workers comp costs from rising.
Join professionals from the Department of Labor and Industries, April 2nd from 10a.m. - noon at the Snohomish Library to learn how to control worker's comp premiums and receive incentives for keeping workers on the job.
You will learn:
