Welcome to the Workers' Compensation IQRM!

Workers’ compensation is a process that can feel complicated as you place coverage through an insurance company, comply with their safety recommendations, and follow the rules determined by various rating bureaus. These issues are further complicated with a remote workforce. Then when an employee suffers an injury, there are doctors, claims adjusters plus, sometimes, attorneys to deal with. Lastly, you have to make sure that your classifications, payroll, and experience modification factor are in sync. The IQRM for Workers’ Compensation offers a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the process in simplistic terms and offers best practices for your consideration.
