Outsourcing Workers’ Compensation: The Top Reasons

a man who has fallen off a ladder and is need of outsourcing workers' compensation

Outsourcing workers’ compensation is becoming increasingly popular among employers today. When you outsource your company’s workers’ compensation insurance, you can hand off the responsibility of maintaining compliance and cost to a professional employer organization, or PEO, such as Canal HR. 

Workers’ compensation is an exceptional security blanket for both employees and employers. If your employee gets injured while working, workers’ compensation provides financial assistance for your injured employee and legal protection for your company. 

Workers’ compensation is highly regulated and can cause complex issues for employers. For a business owner, managing workers’ compensation packages and claims can be costly, and it can be difficult to remain compliant with your area’s regulations. 

Learn more about the benefits of outsourcing workers’ compensation below.

3) Lower Rates

Outsourcing workers’ compensation can save your company a substantial amount of money on workers’ compensation insurance rates. Small business owners get hit the hardest with costs, affecting their bottom line. When you outsource your company’s workers’ compensation, you gain access to lower rates. 

As a professional employer organization, we can significantly lower your workers’ compensation rates because we hold the power to negotiate competitive programs with insurance providers. We also have the ability to buy benefits in bulk, acquiring better benefits at a lower rate per employee. Small business owners can potentially cut their workers’ compensation costs in half with Canal HR.  

4) Reduce Injury

Once you outsource your workers’ compensation, our risk management team can guide your company through the best workplace safety practices. A well-designed safety plan is critical to the success of any business. Your involvement and commitment to safety pays you back with less employee downtime, lower insurance rates and higher employee morale. 

Your safety program will include premises and job-site safety inspections and suggestions, while assisting you with planning safety meetings. Our Risk Manager will investigate and process your work-related injury claims, auditing for fraudulent claims. While we manage your claims, we will also keep you updated on your employee’s progress to facilitate an early return to work program. 

5) Professional Expertise

A PEO can help ensure a company complies with state and federal employment laws. There are countless workers’ compensation rules and regulations that apply to a company. Not keeping up with the numerous federal and state laws can cost a company an excruciatingly large amount of money. 

If you aren’t up-to-date on your industry’s workers’ compensation requirements, teaming up with a PEO can strengthen your company’s compliance.
