					     DEALING WITH ILL AND
       INJURED WORKERS
                     Seminar – Tuesday 17 April 2007

Unsure how to manage an ill or injured worker?
Failure to adequately manage ill and injured workers can prove costly to employers. Understanding your rights and
obligations in this area can help minimise the cost to your business.


This half-day seminar will address the key areas of potential difficulty for employers when dealing with ill or injured
workers from workers compensation through to disability and impairment discrimination and termination of
employment issues.



Why your business should attend this seminar?
Join us for a practical and informative update on the following topics:

n   Immediate focus and attention – Successful management of this issue depends upon an appropriate early response
    that promotes positive interaction with the employee.

n   Disability discrimination – How far does an employer need to go in accommodating an employee’s disability or
    impairment in the workplace?

n   Workers compensation – What are your rehabilitation obligations? How is your workers compensation premium
    affected? Can you dismiss an employee on workers compensation?

n   Employees’ rights – The perspective of an employee advocate representing ill and injured workers.

n   Termination of employment – Are you aware of the pitfalls associated with dismissing an ill or injured worker?
