LEOFF 1 Disability Board best practices

October 25 – Olympia
AWC office
1076 Franklin St SE
Olympia, WA 98501

Public employers continue to face challenges in managing the cost of providing medical care to their LEOFF 1 retirees. Administering a system that balances retiree rights and the public trust is crucial. Attendees will receive a copy of AWC’s LEOFF 1 Disability Board Best Practices Resource Guide, authored by the presenter, which outlines what the law does and doesn’t require, addresses potential public records/public meetings issues, and offers practical, strategic advice and recommendations for best practices to help employers manage this obligation.

Later, attendees will hear from a panel of experts discussing board relations with staff and cost containment, with time to debrief and ask questions during roundtable discussions.

This workshop is for disability board secretaries and HR, legal, fiscal and other management staff in jurisdictions with liability for LEOFF 1 medical costs.
