Be cool and collected in worker’s comp situations 

Handling a worker’s compensation case can be intimidating under the best of circumstances. Ensuring the rights of the employee are protected or enforcing the rights of the employer requires navigating complex processes and regulations. You’ll be well-prepared with the guidance of the Worker’s Compensation Handbook.

With chapters on liability, benefits, penalties, claims, settlement, and appeals, you’ll unlock insightful analysis, hundreds of supporting citations, and information on the policies and workings of the DWD’s Worker’s Compensation Division that will help you successfully advise your clients.

Find the worker’s compensation answers you need 

Now in its seventh edition (June, 2013), the Handbook provides the fundamentals on worker’s compensation law and practice, and is essential for practitioners of employment, personal injury, or insurance law, and corporate counsel. The Handbook provides the information and insight necessary to make informed decisions. You’ll find helpful answers to key questions, such as:

  • How an injured worker becomes entitled to statutory benefits
  • How to proceed in an administrative hearing
  • What constitutes a prima facie case for defending against claims

Take advantage of additional materials and forms

Streamline your workflow even further with the four extensive appendices included in the Handbook. You’ll find the Worker’s Compensation Act, more than 30 sample forms, checklists, and charts, and other useful information like effective dates and mileage rates.

  • The Wisconsin Court of Appeals discussion of the test to be applied to determine independent-contractor status
  • A court of appeals decision concerning permanent partial disability (PPD) percentages allowable for repeat surgical procedures
  • A court of appeals opinion concerning an employer’s notice of an unsafe condition
