NJCRIB is charged by statute to encourage employers to reduce the number and severity of accidents by adjusting premiums through the use of credits and debits under a uniform system of experience rating; establish and maintain rules, regulations and premium rates for workers compensation and employers liability insurance; and adopt means for assuring uniform and accurate audit of payrolls as they relate to workers compensation insurance. www.njcrib.com
Typically, if a contractor has an EMR greater than 1.0, the company is perceived as a high risk contractor not only to the client but to the insurance carrier as well. An EMR rating greater than 1.0 means the contractor more than likely had a workers compensation indemnity claim. To reduce future risk, the insurance company raises the business’ premium. This increase will stay with the business for three years. Experience modifiers are normally recalculated every year.
The ongoing 3 year attention to the EMR rating impacts the contractor and their ability to win new contracts and maintain current ones. Therefore it is critical to the life of the company to maintain an EMR below 1.0. A company with a lower EMR has a competitive advantage.
