Term Of The Day – Ombudsman
An Ombudsman impartial individual who is responsible for investigating complaints in order to mediate a fair and equitable settlement between aggravated parties. It is originally a Swedish term. In some parts of the world it is a government official appointed to investigate complaints against the government made by citizens.
An Ombudsman helps injured employees with their claims. Most states have at least one in their Workers Comp departments. If an employee hired an attorney, the ombudsman cannot help them.
