Workers’ compensation is a dynamic and rapidly changing case; the emergence of new injuries and business structures can call for amendments to be made to labor laws and workers’ compensation acts. Every state has its own workers’ statute and although variations from one law to another definitely exist and there are also major differences in how each state passes its workers’ compensation law, the basic principles behind the compensation laws for each state are pretty much the same. As these laws are made by the government, it goes without saying that they are directly involved in compensation cases.
When the time comes to make certain amendments, government officers have to be aware of the issues related to each business structure in order to pass the right laws to ensure the smooth running of businesses within their jurisdiction. Workers’ compensation training for the government can help government officers and legislators in understanding how different circumstances can affect compensation claims. Government employees are tasked with the responsibility to manage and regulate workers’ compensation within their jurisdiction, especially at the state level, where things can easily get out of control. The RWCS™ workers’ compensation certification is the perfect training program for employees who need to know the facts and enable them to provide accurate advice to regulators and elected officials.
