Finding the proper workers’ compensation for your staffing company is no easy task. Insurance companies require several applications, 941’s previous premium history, loss runs, a full client list and much more. Finding insurance can be a daunting task, especially finding the insurance plan that best fits your staffing company. However, the process can be made easier by making a plan and following these steps:
Insurance is generally the last thing on anyone’s mind but when it comes to insuring your staffing company, it is best to start the process 90 days in advance.
Go With Those Who Know
Because the staffing industry is so specialized, working with an agent that already knows the ins and outs of workers’ compensation insurance will get you further, faster.
Creating a breakdown of your worker population by state and by job type will give your insurer a better idea of which work better insight into your worker’s compensation costs.
Review Your Contracts
Send all of your client contracts to your insurance agency to ensure you are meeting your coverage requirements.
Match Up Class Codes
Once you receive a proposal from your insurance agent, sit down and look through workers’ compensation class codes to make sure your worker population is properly covered.
Stay Up To Date
Once the policy is in place, inform your agent when you are adding new workers for a new client to ensure they are properly covered on the policy.
You should also assign an employee to handle all necessary insurance certificates throughout the year, or else you will be scrambling before your annual audit.
