Specific topics include:

• What to keep in mind when reporting WSIB/WCB claims
• Reporting and managing complex claims (i.e. occupational disease claims and traumatic mental stress claims)
• Best practices for claims management including requirements for re-employment and co-operation, offers of suitable work
• How to address “barriers” to return to work
