5 tricks and tips to make the best of managing your occupational injuries cases

Being proactive in managing cases of occupational injury, does that ring a bell? Are you among those who simply respond when they receive medical certificates and decisions by the CNESST, or rather among those who know from the outset the date of the next medical assessment of the employee on medical leave and who try to influence the upcoming decision? Are you inclined to concur with the opinion of the employee’s physician or do you exercise the rights available to you under the AIAOD, as soon as possible, to bring the cost of a claim down to a minimum? Upstream action, with an overall realistic understanding of the case, instead of reacting to events as they come, can make all the difference in terms of financial outcomes.
