Workers’ Compensation Insurance provides employees with proper compensation for job-related injuries or illnesses. Although specific laws vary by state, workers’ compensation insurance is generally required of companies with W-2 employees.
Premiums are usually determined through a formula which includes a number of factors including salary, benefits and other variables.
The initial premiums are based on a number of prognostications including the amount of wages to be paid to workers. At the end of the policy period an audit is performed to determine the actual premium amount. The results of the audit can result in either a refund or additional premiums due.
