Episode Notes

When a workers’ compensation claim is made, there are many elements of federal law that get triggered.

On this episode of Workers Comp Matters, host Alan Pierce interviews Melissa Fleischer from the HR Learning Center LLC.

In addition they talk about when workers can be terminated, healthcare commitments under COBRA, and unpaid leave.
