Bob Nicoll, Program Manager, CareWorksComp

The Workers’ Compensation System can be complicated and downright daunting but it is essential for employers to know how the system works so they can make good business decisions.  Most workers’ compensation mistakes are the result of lack of knowledge, lack of communication or lack of involvement or action.  One thing is clear, mistakes can negatively impact an employer’s profitability.

Mr. Nicoll will discuss the 10 most common mistakes employers make; he will explain the negative effects of: not understanding the Workers’ Compensation System, not being involved, not having a knowledgeable point person, not having an injury reporting process, not understanding how rates are established, not understanding how a claim impacts your bottom line, not taking advantage of rating discount & refund programs, and not understanding and utilizing claim cost control strategies.  He will also explain how missing deadlines and lapsed coverage can affect your bottom line.
