  • Providing advice on how to shop for workers’ compensation insurance.
  • Helping businesses that are in dispute with their insurance company, and helping them navigate through the appeal processes that are available.
  • Conducting outreach to businesses and their professional advisers to educate them about their rights and responsibilities under the workers’ compensation laws.
