Events

Things happening to injured workers and
things happening by injured workers!



This page has been setup to provide information about events for or by injured workers.
Due to COVID-19,
all in-person events have been cancelled and/or moved online. This is also the case for local injured worker meetings as well. For this reason, I have setup a separate category for Group meetings as many are hosting speaker event sin addition to their regular peer support meetings. I strongly encourage injured workers to attend the meetings as they can be very informative and supportive. There are no regional limits on these meetings. Meaning that if you do not live in their area you are still encouraged to attend.

Group to Investigate Board Doctors - Ongoing

In conversation with other injured workers, we realized that there is a systemic issue with the workers compensation boards making use of medical doctors to in effect deny legitimate claims for workers compensation.

This has been done in two most common ways.
The first, is when the workers compensation board uses in house medical consultants, which have been commonly and rightfully referred to as “PAPER DOCTORS”, by injured workers and injured worker advocates. These paper doctors will normally review an injured worker’s entire file, including the memos and correspondence sections. Then, in most cases, these paper doctors will recommend to the workers compensation board to reduce, deny, or force an injured worker back to work, regardless of the injured worker’s concerns or of the injured worker’s doctor’s concerns. This recommendation will be based solely on the paper claim file. These doctors will NOT perform any in person examinations.
It is without question the most egregious violation of one’s right to autonomy.

The second is also very commonly used. This is where the workers compensation board will refer, or more accurately force an injured worker to attend an independent medical examiner (IME). This doctor will examine the injured worker, but will, as I like to say act like a southern faith healer, and say you are fully recovered or will be very soon. The basis of the diagnosis and prognosis of this doctor will not be based on any medical evidence and in contrary to any legitimate medical journals or guides. What is even more disturbing is that these doctors and their respective clinics have been found to 1. Being paid considerably more than an injured worker’s doctor and 2. Also receives incentives or bonus for the more claims they get denied.

Another concern that was raised is how the workers compensation boards reimburse our doctors, and other medical treating professionals we see for treatment. Often, they are paid at a rate of 50% less their normal billing fee. They are also fighting for many months to be paid on time by the workers compensation boards. This leads many doctors to refuse to take on patients with work injuries due to the amount of aggravation intentionally caused by the workers compensation boards.

As a result of this realization, I agreed to take on the responsibility of scheduling and holding a meeting. Organizing a group and to invite people who represent, treat injured workers, as well as university researchers who are experts at performing research. I will start the committee up and if desired I can back away from the group or stay active in it.

The first meeting will be held by ZOOM. I will post the registration for the zoom meeting here. I am looking at hosting it on a Sunday afternoon, about 2 to 4pm. This is to accommodate those working and those in the western region of Canada. I will wait a day or so and then set the meeting.

If you and many people are opposed to this day and time, please e-mail me at
fightwcb@gmail.com

CRWDP Webinar Implicit Bias in Disability Disclosure. - April 28th 12:00pm EST

Webinar Outline:

Persons with disabilities face potential discrimination at all stages of an employment cycle, ranging from hiring to performance evaluations. This is because persons with disabilities often face implicit bias—unconscious stereotypes that people hold about persons with disabilities. In the first part of this presentation, I present research findings on managers’ evaluations of employees with disabilities in the return-to-work context. More specifically, I will discuss how different types of disability labels may have implications for managers’ differential evaluations, and how a “pending diagnosis” may protect persons with disabilities from unfair managerial evaluations. Next, I will discuss how a swift shift to work from home arrangements caused by the pandemic may benefit persons with disabilities. Moreover, I will consider potential downsides of working from home and highlight recommendations aimed at mitigating those potential downsides.

Hosted by: CRWD

Workers' Compensation Best Practices (California U.S.) - Jul. 20th 12:00pm EST


This is an employer event, but it is good for injured workers to attend to learn.

About the event
In one hour we will walk participants through workers' compensation claim management from start to finish. This presentation is designed to help business owners, managers, and supervisors effectively manage injured workers legally and effectively. Participants can expect to learn:
Accident reporting techniques and the value they bring to improving your current safety program.
Modified duty assignments.
California and Federal law do’s and don'ts.
Post accident drug and alcohol testing.
California Medical Provider Network (MPN).
Employee and employer responsibilities in the claim process.

Worker injuries can and do occur. The best way to manage these events is through pre-planning and understanding of the workers compensation system. Because employees are a valuable resource, fair and consistent management of these injured employees ensures they get well quicker and back to doing the work you hired them to do. Join Bret Hinerman as he shares best practices to get your injured employees back to work and minimizing the drama and potential litigation that often accompanies worker injuries. Bret has over 25 years’ experience in both general industry and construction safety and risk management.
