Almost 200 million employees in this country are covered by workers' compensation legislation and programs. Workers' comp has been the subject of an increasing number of articles, and we have found that reporters are often looking for reliable background information to develop and support their work.
Sarasota, FL, (PRWEB) November 13, 2006 -
WorkersCompensation.com has announced the development of a Journalist Resource Area on its award winning website. The area will assist journalists in their efforts when authoring articles and stories related to workers' compensation. It was established in response to increasing inquiries from reporters and publications around the country who require specific background information about workers' comp.
Workers' compensation is governed independently by each state, and there can be vast differences in the many systems around the nation. WorkersCompensation.com, as the largest and most visited workers' comp website in the world, has proven to be a vital resource to media representatives covering this important topic. Company president, Robert Wilson explains, "Almost 200 million employees in this country are covered by workers' compensation legislation and programs. Workers' comp has been the subject of an increasing number of articles, and we have found that reporters are often looking for reliable background information to develop and support their work."
The Journalist Resource Area offers basic overview information on workers' comp and its history in this nation as well as a layman's guide to the legal underpinnings of the workers' compensation system. The company also provides journalists complimentary access to its extensive research database, and the Journalist Resource Desk is available by phone and email to field specific press inquiries regarding workers' compensation in any state.
The company also gives journalists a platform to publish and distribute their articles to more than 7,000 workers' compensation professionals through its NewsLine Press Center, which allows for direct article publication both on WorkersCompensation.com and other sites through integrated RSS feeds. Additional services to support journalists are planned in the future.
The Journalist Resource Area is free to qualified journalists and media representatives, and may be accessed at http://journalists.workerscompensation.com.
WorkersCompensation.com remains the only national publicly available website dedicated to the workers' compensation community. Online since January 1, 2000, it is the largest and most visited online portal available today. It serves millions of unique visitors every year. The company headquarters are located in Sarasota, Florida.
