  • How to avoid hiring your next work comp claim

    One of the most expensive costs for nearly any business is that of workers’ compensation insurance. When faced with frequent or severe claims, an employer’s mod rate can go through the roof, resulting in higher premiums. Work comp claims also generate numerous indirect costs, such as covering for an employee’s absence, declining morale and copycat claims. Wouldn’t it be great if there were some way to stop work comp claims before they even walk through your door? Join us to discuss how effective hiring practices, pre-hire assessments, background checks, job descriptions, ergonomics and other tactics can help you minimize the risk of hiring your next work comp claim.
