SKU: RV-7774Duration: 60 Minutes

What would happen if you were injured in an accident on the job? Who would pay your medical bills and compensate you for time lost from work? In the state of Florida, not all employers are required to provide workers' compensation insurance. Workers need to understand their rights and know if they are covered in the event of a work-related accident. The purpose of this 1-hour interactive online course is to educate employees about their legal rights under workers' compensation. The class explains what workers' compensation insurance is and who needs coverage. It also discusses proper procedures in the event of an accident, and how implemented preventative measures, such as safety awareness and a drug-free workplace program, can reduce the occurrences of work-related incidents and maintain a healthy workforce.
