Workers' Compensation from Start to Finish

Findlay Inn & Conference Center, 200 E. Main Cross St., Findlay, Ohio

In today's economic climate, employers must watch every dollar. One area that especially requires monitoring is employers' workers' compensation costs. Join us for a seminar focused on providing employers with practical information to help reduce those costs and effectively manage their workers' compensation programs.

The seminar will include advanced discussions of what to consider in deciding whether to accept or contest a claim, practical advice for improving your chance of success in Industrial Commission hearing rooms, judicial review of adverse Commission decisions, what to consider when settling a claim (including Medicare Set-Asides), and the effect of Federal laws like the ADA and FMLA on workers' comp. practices and decision making.

This seminar will also feature a session with staff hearing officer Dan Lortie of the Industrial Commission who will discuss how to be successful in the hearing room from a hearing officer's perspective. In other words, Dan will discuss what you should do and what you shouldn't do.

Registration is free and will begin at 12:30 p.m. The seminar starts at 1:00 p.m. and lasts until 4:30 p.m.

Although you will be given an opportunity to ask questions during the seminar, you are encouraged to submit questions in advance of the seminar to so we can tailor our presentation to meet your needs. Please contact Andrea Kenney at (or 419-247-1616) by February 10, 2012, to register.

There will be a reception for our guests immediately following the seminar.
