Line of Duty Injuries: How to Effectively Manage Workers’ Comp Injuries

A Recovery Based Approach 

The California Police Chiefs Association, in conjunction with the Jones Mayer & Hanna Brophy law firms, is hosting an executive organizational development session directed toward the critical issue of line of duty injuries. The health and wellness of the members of our law enforcement agencies is a core priority for Chiefs of Police and command staff. One of the central dimensions of this critical issue is the effectiveness of the treatment organizations provide following a line of duty injury. The purpose of this program is to assist chiefs, senior command staff, and human resources professionals with achieving improved recovery outcomes from the Workers’ Compensation system for their injured personnel. The material will offer an organizational approach for senior leaders to apply in driving the treatment process. The course will explain how treatment is delayed, denied, or approved, provide the legal basis for leaders to exert their authority and influence, reconcile true economic cost of injuries, offer protocols for helping assure accountability, and discuss overcoming barriers to change.

This will be the third time the California Police Chiefs Association has offered this session. The curriculum has been adapted following each presentation. This program will include new content addressing how treatment, recovery, and permanent disability interact with the PERS retirement system.

The format of the program is intended to facilitate a working dialogue focused on assisting leaders with what they are encountering in their agencies today.
