Workers’ Comp Institute to Address Key Issues in Orlando

Workers CompDon’t miss the Workers’ Compensation conference this August.

This August, the 69th Annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference® and the 26th Annual Safety and Health Conference will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott. As the name implies, the conference will focus on national workers’ compensation and safety industries.

Common Concerns

Workers’ compensation laws vary from state to state. In the past, it was understood that people who are stakeholders in the workers’ compensation industry would have to deal only with issues particular to their state. 

However, thanks to this conference, that is no longer the case. The conference is open to all people who have a vested interest in workers’ compensation, regardless of where they’re located. At the conference, they can learn about issues that have no boundaries and concerns that are shared by insurance professionals from different states.
