    Workers' Compensation: What's HR Got to Do With It?

    Presented by:

    Pat Crawford

    Workers' Compensation/Return to Work Specialist

    Texas Division of Workers' Compensation


    Understanding the factors that drive work comp costs, that may not be directly related to an injury, is critical for employers in managing their costs.  

    The longer an injured employee is away from work, the higher the employers’ costs and the worse the impact of the injury is on the employee.  Eliminating unnecessary lost time is a critical factor, with or without workers’ comp.  

    You Will Learn:

    This session provides tools to address and avoid issues that result from medically unnecessary lost time.  Costly turnover is eliminated; business and workers’ compensation costs are significantly reduced.  Learn how to be proactive in managing issues around job related injury, participate in the management of claims, and avoid some of the pitfalls faced by employers in getting injured employees back to work.
