A workers' compensation administrator is responsible for overseeing workers' compensation claims and determining if the claims are valid. These administrators are also in charge of facilitating back-to-work programs that assist prospective employees and prove cost effective for their organization. They also help in finding modified-duty assignments for employees, as well as track employees' progress in those assignments. Additionally, workers' compensation administrators oversee preventative safety programs, work with management to develop relevant policies as needed, and perform other human resources duties as required. They must also stay up to date on all relevant rules and regulations at the state, federal, and company levels.
