Comp 101. This session is designed for those professionals with three years or less experience with the Maine’s workers’ compensation system. If you are highly familiar with the system, the basic issues, and form filing requirements, this program is not for you! Following introductory remarks by Paul Sighinolfi, the Board’s Executive Director, the faculty will introduce you to key concepts, terminology, and procedures. Learn about the sequence of events that follow a typical compensation claim and the basic defenses to a claim. The faculty also discusses the completion of Board forms as well as the obligation and time frames for filing the forms, with particular emphasis on the common errors in form completion that we all encounter. Written materials prepared by the program faculty and by the Board will supplement the presentation.
Approved for CLE, CCMC, SHRM and HRCI general (HR) credit.
Lunch is included for individuals who pre-register for this session.
