L&I Adopts a 5% Decrease to Workers' Compensation Premiums for 2019

Workers

L&I attributes the decrease to several factors, including declining workplace injury rates, along with L&I initiatives that are helping injured workers recover sooner and reducing workers' compensation costs.

The rate decrease means employers will pay about $58 less a year per employee for workers' compensation coverage in 2019. Employees will pay an average $6 less per year for their share.

The 5% workers' compensation premium decrease is an average; individual employers may see smaller or larger drops depending on that employer's industry and claims history. For that same reason, some employers will see increases.
