The cost of Workers’ Compensation will vary depending on factors such as payroll, the location of your business, and the type of work your employees do. Typically, industries with a higher chance of an on-the-job accident such as construction will pay higher premiums. Industries like information technologies or accounting generally will have low premiums. Businesses with more employees will normally pay more for a workers’ comp policy, since the odds of an injury increase with the number of employees.
