Did you know that employees who have been on the job less than one year account for nearly 40 percent of the total claim costs and number of claims reported? Fraudulent Workers’ Compensation claims are becoming a serious issue and we all pay the price through increased insurance costs.  Most of us would never even think about being dishonest in regards to work related injuries, but in reality, it happens all too often.

At NUCA of Colorado's April Safety Breakfast Meeting, our goal is to provide you with the necessary tools that you need in order to safely introduce new employees into your workplace through proven, legal hiring practices. A solid hiring process is broken into three stages: pre-offer, post-offer window and post-placement. NUCA will cover all three stages from the pre-offer stage including application and interview to the post-conditional offer stage, in which the employer can best evaluate prospective candidates. As an added bonus, you’ll also learn how to assess existing employees’ abilities to perform their jobs safely and what you can do if they can’t. Utilizing the readily available legal ways of screening potential employees can save a business thousands of dollars.
