- 11/1, 8am - 5pm, Worker’s Compensation – Initial Documentation through Return-to-Work , Center for Risk Management- It is essential to properly report and document every on-the-job injury. From the initial filing of the Texas DWC-1, Employer's First Report of Injury or Illness to making a Bona Fide Offer of Employment there are many pitfalls to avoid. Understanding how to correctly report the incident details can make the difference in the acceptance or denial of the incident by your workers' compensation carrier. In the end, returning injured employees back to work as soon as medically possible following an injury is a major goal of the workers' compensation system and all case managers. Workers' compensation case managers should always seek to provide the best possible outcome for both the employee and employer. This class is taught by N. Stuart.
