Workers' Compensation



An employer has rights and responsibilities just as the employee does.

For employers, we offer additional programs to assist with the workplace.

Request a Speaker

The Department of Workers' Claims (DWC) is fortunate to have several staff members qualified to speak on a wide variety of workers' compensation topics ranging from statutory requirements to coverage posting guidelines.

"Common Questions About Becoming Self Insured," "An Overview of Kentucky Simulated Premium and Surety Calculations," "Goals of DWC and the Drug-Free Workplace Program" are just a few examples of educational presentations the agency has already developed. However, if your interests lie in other areas of the Kentucky workers' compensation program, a customized presentation can be created to address your specific needs.

To learn more about requesting a speaker, contact:
