  • Looking from the Insurer's perspective: Why injured workers are not returning to work as expected? How the case manager can facilitate injured workers in returning to work. The speakers will illustrate some practical examples in the area of employee compensation claims to put matters into perspective;
  • A step by step approach from an initial dispute towards a mediated settlement will provide the audience with a complete picture of the benefits and pitfalls of using mediation at the early stages of the dispute;
