      No Comments on “Worker’s Compensation 101”

Lunch and Learn hosted by NAWIC #113

Presented by Planned Administrators Inc and AssuredPartners

Do you ever wonder if you really have to report that employees small injury to your insurance agent/carrier? Do your employees feel free to report claims or do they think there will be a negative outcome? What processes do you have in place for the injured worker that can return to work but with restrictions? What are your options if you think that Monday morning claim might actually be the result of some weekend activities of your employee? Should you continue to pay the injured or let Workers Comp pick up the wages? Learn the answers to these questions and MORE at the NAWIC Columbia Lunch & Learn!

Please join us on Thursday, December 11th from Noon to 1:30 PM at McCrory Construction’s training room to learn the answers to these questions and more.

FREE to NAWIC members and $10.00 for non-members.
