The formula for determining your company’s workers’ compensation rates is complex, but the concept behind it is simple: the more claims that your employees file, the higher your rate will be.
If you spend a lot of time – or even worse, not enough time – trying to find ways to lower workers’ compensation costs, a professional employer organization (PEO), might be a good fit for you.
How Can I Lower My Workers’ Compensation Rates?
There are two rate management strategies every business should implement when it comes to workers’ compensation: cost containment and loss prevention.
