WCAN is a broad-based, statewide coalition that has successfully fought for reforms to provide state and local officials more tools to combat workers’ compensation fraud to help meet the dual goals of stable costs for employers and higher benefits for injured workers. In recent years, state lawmakers enacted several pieces of legislation designed to improve system efficiency, reduce conflict and litigation, and stem abuses by service providers. These reforms are delivering higher benefits to California workers while stabilizing employer costs. Despite these reforms, California’s system remains one of the most costly and litigious in the nation and vulnerable to evolving forms of fraud and abuse.
Complimentary lunch will be provided.
