Sedgwick thought leaders will be participating in the following educational sessions at the 2013 National Workers' Compensation and Disability Conference. Don't miss these great sessions.
  • Workers’ Comp Fraud: Liars, Cheaters and Thieves
    Wednesday, November 20, 2013 | 2:30 to 3:45
    Panelists: Dave Smith, Divisional Vice President, Risk Management, Family Dollar Stores; Pamela Webster, Senior Claims Manager, Advance Auto Parts; Christopher E. Mandel, Senior Vice President, Strategic Solutions, Sedgwick

    Session Description:

    Millions of dollars are lost each year from fraud in the workers’ comp system. At a time when businesses are doing more with less, few can afford the strains posed by fraudulent actions. In addition to employee fraud, providers and employers who circumvent the rules can cause as much or more expense and are harder to detect. But organizations are fighting back with new tools such as social media and predictive modeling. Learn about the different types of fraud, the red flags to identify them, and strategies to stop fraud in its tracks.

  • Legislative Reforms and How They will Impact You
    Friday, November 22, 2013 | 10:00 to 11:15
    Panelists:  Sean McDaniel, Director, Claims Management, Veolia Environmental Services; Becky Robinson, Assistant Vice President, Hobby Lobby; Darrell Brown, Chief Performance Officer, Sedgwick

    Session Description:
    Workers’ comp practitioners who are unprepared for legislative changes can be blindsided by the effects on their business operations. But those who understand the reasons for the discussions can anticipate and embrace reforms. The most savvy employers know how to make their voices heard in state capitals. Our panel of workers’ comp professionals will examine key factors driving crucial changes, evaluate the scope of reforms being considered in key states and suggest ways employers can influence future legislative discussions.
