The Future of Workers' Compensation Insurers under the ADAAA
At first blush, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) may seem to focus on applicants, employees, employers, physicians, and work evaluators. However, given his unique way of looking at the world, Roy Matheson sees the new law as potentially revolutionizing the world of workers' compensation risk management. Join Roy as he discusses the twists and turns of the ADAAA that may change the way insurers look at their claims management models.

How to Ameliorate Conservative Return-to-Work Restrictions
Workers’ compensation case managers, human resource professionals, and risk managers often struggle with work restrictions that appear to be unduly conservative. Indeed, physicians suffer between the Scylla of accurate knowledge of a worker's job and the Charybdis of doubt about the worker’s enthusiasm for return-to-work.
Work evaluators are uniquely positioned to offer their expertise in navigating these often contentious and unrewarding aspects of their job.
The compass needed for achieving a safe return-to-work combines the ADAAA tenants of Business Necessity, Undue Hardship, Reasonable Accommodation, and Essential Function with a Bona Fide Offer of Alternative Employment based on a legal work evaluation.
Join Roy as he shares his thinking about strengthening the partnerships between physicians, case managers, employers, injured workers, and work evaluators.
