How is the price of workers’ compensation insurance premium set?
Workers’ compensation insurance rates are based upon the “classification of your employees to be covered.” The classification refers to the type of work the individuals perform. Insurance companies establish a premium rate for each classification. However, there are often many adjustments to these basic rules. Because insurance companies do not all charge the same rate for the same workers’ compensation coverage, it is important for your business — either directly or through its insurance agent — to shop around for the best price.
