Beth Smith – What’s Covered? Workers’ Compensation 101

Saturday, August 7, 2021 @ 10am

Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:
Pre-existing injuries, emotional wellness, stress, a skiing accident—are they covered by workers’ compensation?

Understanding the ins and outs of how workers’ compensation works, when the first report of injury is necessary, and how it could affect your business operations is confusing and complex.

Add into the discussion that often times an employee’s work-related injury could make them eligible for an accommodation under the ADA and/or time away from work under a state or federal paid (or unpaid) leave law. Most people’s heads begin to spin.

Join Tawny as she talks to Elizabeth Smith of Verrill. They dig into some of the most common workers’ compensation nightmares that keep companies up at night and share tips and tricks to help you better navigate the intricacies of the system.
