Learn more about which workers’ compensation policy is right for your business and which discounts you qualify for.
Does your business have three or more owners, officers or employees? If so, under The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, your organization is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. While there are some exceptions to this standard, not having workers’ compensation insurance could make your organization liable for fines as well as financial difficulty if one of your employees was hurt on the job and your business became responsible for their medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, etc.
Your Clayton, North Carolina business can become eligible for certain discounts on workers’ compensation insurance if you follow certain guidelines. Although discounts vary by insurer, some of the most common include:
- Group association discounts—Is your business a member of a professional, industry, or trade group or association? Your organization may be eligible for a discount.
- Drug-free workplace discounts—If your company has instituted a drug-free workplace program, most workers’ compensation insurance providers will give you a discount.
- The implementation of a fall prevention or safety program—If your business has a fall prevention or workplace safety program in place, you can usually acquire a discount on your workers’ compensation policy.
