CE Course Description

Workers’ compensation insurance is good for both employees and employers. It protects employees from loss of wages in case of on-the-job injury; and it can also protect employers from potentially debilitating lawsuits. Most states require companies to carry workers’ comp, and state laws dictate the details of policies. Agents who sell workers’ compensation insurance must understand workers’ compensation as a whole—as well as the laws affecting it in their state.

This course provides an in-depth overview of workers’ compensation insurance as a whole. You’ll learn the history of workers’ comp, how workers’ comp policies work, and how risk is calculated. You’ll also learn about compensation and claim procedures—and how claims are processed and judged.
