Navigating the Workers' Compensation System

The California Police Chiefs Association, in conjunction with the Jones Mayer law firm, is hosting an executive organizational development session directed toward the critical issue of line of duty injuries. The purpose of the program is to provide chiefs, senior command staff, and human resources professionals with a practical structure for achieving more effective and successful outcomes from the Workers’ Compensation mechanism in the aftermath of their personnel being hurt.

The course is intended to give leaders an understanding of the value and impact of their role in driving the care and recovery process. The curriculum will explain how treatment is delayed, denied or approved and the legal basis for leaders to exert their authority and influence over these crucial decisions. An honest reconciliation of the true cost of law enforcement injuries will be part of the discussion. The material will also address accountability. The content will additionally give guidance about overcoming some commonly perceived barriers to change.

The number of attendees is being limited in order to facilitate a working dialogue focused on assisting leaders with what they are encountering in their agencies today.
