Understanding Workers' Compensation for Employers V14

SKU: RV-5193aDuration: 60 Minutes

Under federal and Florida State Law, employers have a legal obligation to provide workers' compensation benefits for workers injured on the job. Failure of eligible employers to provide compensation for injured workers may result in lawsuits and heavy fines, so employers need to know their rights and responsibilities. This 1-hour online course explains what workers' compensation insurance is and who needs coverage. It also discusses proper procedures in the event of an accident, and how implemented preventive measures, such as safety awareness and a drug-free workplace program, can reduce the occurrences of work-related incidents and control insurance costs.

  • To keep proper time, you must enable pop ups. Every 13 minutes and 30 seconds, a popup will ask you to keep your time clock running. You will have 90 seconds to click "Continue Session".
