Insurance Commissioner Approves Contractor EMP Rules

On Wednesday, June 17, 2020, the Insurance Commissioner announced his approval of our supported special regulatory filing to make rule changes to the California Workers’ Compensation Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan – 1995 (USRP) and the California Workers’ Compensation Experience Rating Plan – 1995 (ERP). The most significant portion of the decision was the approval of the regulations that would exclude COVID-19 claims from a contractor’s experience modification rate (EMR). These proposed regulations were of critical importance in protecting contractors from significant increases in their EMR related to COVID-19 incidents. A copy of the decision can be found by clicking here.
