Workers comp insurance premiums to drop
Tennessee officials have announced that Tennessee workers’ compensation insurance premiums will decrease for the sixth consecutive year to a record low, continuing the trend of substantial savings created for Tennessee employers and workers. The 19 percent filing will become effective March 1, 2019. “I am pleased to see these continued decreases in workers compensation premiums,” said Governor Bill Haslam. “Our workers compensation reform has been a significant step toward improving the business climate in Tennessee and growing jobs. Our reforms brought clarity and fairness to the system and continue to benefit our state.” Since 2013, loss cost reductions of over 48 percent have been approved, representing substantial savings for Tennessee employers. The reduced rates have also been impacted by Tennessee employers seeing fewer significant workplace injuries.
