Washington’s Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) has announced that it plans to hold workers’ comp rates flat in 2013. Depending on claims history and cost of claims in their industry, employers may see their rates go up or down. L&I Director Judy Schurke credited the 2011 worker’s comp reforms and has indicated that L&I expects fewer than usual future claims from high hazard industries like construction. Nancy Dicus, Vigilant’s VP of Operations, was part of the discussions regarding rates due to her involvement on the workers’ comp advisory committee.
