The Association of Workers’ Compensation Proffesionals (WCCP) has a very important post up on their website about potential draconian changes to the Department of Financial Services’ Adjuster Code of Ethics.  Some of these changes do not reflect the real world scenario of a W/C adjuster.

These changes have the potential to expose alot of Carriers and their claims professionals to serious legal exposure.  I encourage you to read the letter, posted by WCCP Executive Director Jim Greer, here.   There is still time to communicate your dissatification with these changes to the Department of Financial Services.

If you are a claims professional and have not joined WCCP, I encourage you to do so.  They provide excellent services, including industry newso, nline forums, job listings, and continuing education programs, including one of my favorites, the Florida Bar Workers’ Compensation Board Certification Forum held in Orlando every April.   The WCCP is kind enough to link to this blog as well. 

You can see my updated posts at their website and Facebook page.
