Do You Really Understand Your Company’s Workers’ Comp Policy?

8.1.16

All too often we hear news about the fines and lawsuits that companies suffer all because they aren’t familiar with the nuances of workers’ compensation insurance. So, are you sure you really understand your company’s workers’ compensation policy?

You Are The First Line of Defense

Crew Connection books crews in every corner of the globe (Find out how to take advantage of that here!), so we know all there is to know about insurance requirements. We do our very best to ensure that the crews we match you up with meet your company’s guidelines. However, the only way to do that accurately is if you know what those guidelines are! Make sure that you’re aware of your company’s workers’ compensation policy and that you communicate it to your personalized Crew Connection coordinator.
