Workers’ compensation insurance is required by law. It protects you and your employees from having to shoulder costly medical bills, and it compensates workers’ for loss of income in the event of a workplace injury. At National PEO we have a team of workers’ compensation management specialists in place to handle your policy administration, injury claim administration, and safety compliance.
Our team will take care of workers’ compensation so that you can concentrate on your business. We provide:
According to the workers’ compensation definition, employers carry workers’ compensation insurance to take care of workers’ who are hurt on the job. In exchange, employees agree not to sue their employers for negligence when accidents happen.
Although having insurance saves employers money on medical expenses and damages, many small business owners make mistakes when purchasing, renewing, and managing their workers’ compensation policies. Those mistakes cause many businesses to overpay for workers’ comp insurance.
With policy administration from National PEO, you’ll be confident that employees will get workers’ compensation benefits when they need them. At the same time, we’ll prevent simple mistakes that could cost you money.
If you overestimate your yearly payroll when renewing your policy, you could find yourself paying too high a premium. Alternatively, if you underestimate your payroll, you could end up owing a lump sum at year’s end. National PEO helps you make accurate estimates so that you pay neither too much nor too little.
Sometimes, a minor change in the way you do business can significantly affect your workers’ comp premium. We’ll stay alert to any changes in your operations, and we’ll let you know if those changes could affect your costs.
