Topics of discussion included, among others:

  • Costs of workers’ compensation and premiums increases for certain high risk categories of employees
  • Back-to-work policies and other cost reduction strategies
  • The relationship between case management and employee morale

Representatives of large and small counties throughout the state participated in the discussion, many attending the meeting in Annapolis in person. The best practices and experiences shared provided a learning opportunity for all.
