At WorkersCompensation.com, the impact on our operations from the COVID-19 Pandemic has been similar to that of much of the industry. In order to keep our employees safe our Pandemic Response Plan was activated, and the offices were closed from mid-March through most of May. Operationally we were unaffected. Since re-opening, we are following recommended safety protocols related to temperature checks and social distancing.
Our Compliance Department worked closely with our development staff to build a comprehensive COVID-19 Update Center to track the plethora of notices, updates and rule changes that are coming forth as a result of the crisis. The center allows our users to search by state or across the nation on a comparative basis for topics like Telehealth, court proceedings, administrative office changes and more. This center is based in our WorkCompResearch.com Members area, but to help the industry we made the entire service free to the public from March 17, 2020 through April 30, 2020. This section proved invaluable to both paid and complimentary subscribers during this period. We will continue to monitor and update this section for the remainder of the year, and for as long thereafter that it is necessary.
You may access the WorkCompResearch.com Members Area here.
It is our sincere hope that all will stay healthy and safe, and that life soon returns to normal for all of us. Until that time however, rest assured we are working to help wherever we can and give back to an industry that has been very good to us for over twenty years.
