HIWA Annual Educational Workshop
Have You or Someone You Know been injured At Work?
If you've been injured on the job, or know of anyone who has been injured on the job, then you will want to attend a workshop on your rights and benefits under the state workers’ compensation law.
As of December 2017, HIWA received a generous donation from an anonymous donor of $2500 to begin a new fund called the “Dignity Fund”. The donor noted that this fund was to help injured workers in situations where a grant would help them actuate their goals; where the insurance carriers would not or could not provide assistance. The fund would accept requests for expenses incurred by survivors of work-related injuries when benefits do not cover quality of life items and services. The fund has begun distributing funds and will accept requests on an open basis from injured workers, their physicians, attorneys, therapists, vocational rehabilitation counselors or other support personnel. While fund recipients are encouraged to donate back into the fund if personal circumstances allow, it is not a condition for funding.
