For many employers—particularly those with a national or highly dispersed workforce—compliance with workers' compensation laws often becomes a struggle with complex, sometimes contradictory state regulations and procedures. As employee-related costs continue to rise, preventing and managing workers' compensation claims is an increasingly important factor in your business's success.
The attorneys and member firms of ALFA International provide coordinated guidance and cost-effective solutions that will help your company streamline its approach to these challenges. ALFA attorneys are fully experienced in all areas of workers' compensation law across the country, including state regulations, administrative procedures, and industry-specific rules.
As thought-leaders in the field, lawyers in the ALFA International Workers' Compensation Practice Group actively participate in governmental committees and oversight bodies, industry organizations, and local and national legal associations, often in leadership roles.
In addition to traditional legal counseling, our attorneys work hand-in-hand with clients to develop and deliver innovative workers' compensation services. These include programs for electronic access to workers' compensation dockets and files; integrated systems for processing and management of claims; and the creation of safety and prevention programs. Our lawyers also play key roles in influencing the development of safety, health, and workers' compensation-related legislation.
