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, 2018.
Key findings included that Oregon had the sixth least expensive rates in 2018, an improvement from its ranking as the seventh least expensive state the last time the study was done, in 2016. This edition also found New York replacing California as the state with the highest rates, bumping California to second place. North Dakota remained the state with the least expensive rates. So far a summary write up has been posted, with the full report expected to be posted later this year.
