Mini Conference I: IRMI CRIS Course - Workers' Comp for Contractors

Jun 22, 2013 8:00am ‐ Jun 22, 2013 5:00pm

Credits: None available.

Workers’ comp insurance is tied to statutory rules and stipulations that dictate many aspects of coverage, from how policies are written to benefits that are payable. To manage this risk effectively, parties must understand key aspects of workers’ comp laws, legal rulings, and administrative requirements, as well as unique exposures contractors face that require special attention.

Based on the Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS) curriculum, this course provides a basic-to-intermediate overview of standard workers’ comp and employers’ liability insurance. You will be able to identify and describe:
• Provisions that most affect coverage or create problems
• Key statutes that impact contractors’ workers’ comp exposure and costs, such as independent contractor liability, employee leasing, overtime pay, and various federal acts
• Suggestions for modifying coverage to address potential gaps and other problematic provisions

You will leave this course well on your way to passing the corresponding exam for the CRIS certification. Insurance CE credit of up to 7 hours will be available in most states.
