Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services’ (DCBS) release of its biennial study on workers’ compensation costs, which ranks all 50 states and Washington, D.C., based on premium rates that were in effect Jan. 1, 2016.
Key findings included that Oregon had the 7th least expensive rates in 2016, an improvement from its ranking as the 9th least expensive state since the last study was conducted in 2014. California remained at the top for most expensive rates, followed by New Jersey, which replaced Connecticut in 2nd place, while North Dakota remained the least expensive. So far a summary write up has been posted, with the full report expected to be posted later this year.
