October Retro Think-Tank meeting schedule announced

Mark your calendar and don’t miss your upcoming October EMR Think Tank meeting! Register in advance and you'll have an opportunity to leave the meeting with your firm's 2016 proposed EMR -- along with valuable information that will save you time and money by lowering your L&I rates and maximizing your premium refund.

New this year

  • key info on changes to the Preferred-Worker Program: There is new legislation that expands the benefits of the premium discount and claim indemnification protection to the Employer of Injury when offering a full-time modified job to an injured employee with permanent restrictions. There is also a new $10,000 reimbursement to employers.

  • best practices to complete the Report of Accident form on-line (help maintain your claims-free discount, ensure accurate wage-replacement rates, etc.)


You can leave the meeting with

  • your company’s proposed 2016 Experience Modification Rate (EMR), if you register in advance, as well as info on how to review it and ensure it is correct. One pager handout about how to protest (we do that for you)!

  • a brief overview of how EMRs are calculated (L&I will speak on the calculation process and answer questions).

  • new knowledge of some key practices to help resolve claim issues sooner, lower your experience rate, and maximize your refund.
