Workers' Comp Coverage for Staffing Agencies

Temporary staffing is a labor intensive business and often has many unknown variables. Among the chief underwriting concerns for insurance companies are potential employee misclassifications and agencies assigning employees to prohibited class codes. A lot of standard markets do not write staffing agencies because they have not been profitable on their books of business.

We've been helping staffing agency owners find more affordable coverage for over 15 years. Our experts understand the underwriting requirements from the insurance companies and we know how to negotiate the lowest rates on coverage. That's why we've developed staffing programs designed to help you get the best rates and most flexible payment options.

We partner with the best carriers writing staffing coverage.

Workers' Comp Insurance for Temp Agencies

Employees are grouped into classification codes based on their job duties and work functions. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) currently utilizes nearly 800 class codes to help insurance companies and agents categorize employees for rating purposes. Insurance companies set a base manual rate for each class code in order to begin pricing a policy.

Properly classifying workers is an important part of the quote process. Mis-classified employees can cost small businesses thousands of dollars. You could end up paying too much for coverage or owing more money after an annual audit.

Our Staffing Agency Insurance Programs

We have worked with our insurance carriers to offer workers' compensation coverage options to staffing agencies who meet carrier underwriting requirements and can demonstrate management know-how and a commitment to managing claims. Our carriers are looking for select staffing agencies that have experienced management teams or owners, as well as a track record of minimal workers' comp losses.

Some of our insurance company programs have minimum premium requirements exceeding $5,000 and may require at least 3 years in business prior to offering a quote. We continue to have success with our staffing program and continue to update and relax some of our underwriting requirements with underwriters. Interested staffing agencies should contact us to determine whether or not we have a current market in your state that fits with your current agency profile.

Our most successful candidates for our Target Programs include nurse staffing, long-term contract employment, project staffing, and agencies with a more homogenous group of "lower-risk" class codes. Smaller agencies and new start-up agencies are the most difficult to quote with one of our carriers outside of the State Insurance Fund. We do help staffing agencies start-up within their state pool and help transition them to standard markets as soon as their first renewal.

Alternative State Class Codes for Staffing

Sometimes a state will deviate from the industry class code recommended by NCCI. Instead of the NCCI code, they may require the utilization of a state specific class code for certain business segments.

What Does Workers' Comp Cover?

What does workers comp cover?

Workers' comp coverage protects employees when injured. It makes good financial sense for both parties.

Injuries and accidents happen. A workers' comp policy is a no-fault system that pays for these accidents and claims. It's required by law in most states.
  • Loss of income for employees unable to perform job duties
  • Medical expenses for employees injured on the job
  • Retraining expenses for employees unable to return
  • Permanent injury or disability for lasting injuries
  • Survivor benefits if employees are killed on the job

Coverage does not protect employers from everything. Sometimes employees and employers can be negligent.

Workmans comp does not cover negligence
In some instances, workers' compensation coverage will not protect employers or employees from the legal liability resulting from a workplace injury.
  • Injuries resulting from a violation of the law
  • Incidents resulting from employees' use fo drugs or alcohol
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job
  • Clear company policy violations
  • Injuries that did not occur in connection with the job

Lower Your Staffing Insurance Costs

The cost of business insurance has been increasing for small businesses. General liability and workers' comp insurance have been the major cause of the increase in the cost of coverage. We've partnered with our insurance companies to provide more affordable commercial insurance solutions for our customers. Ask about our package insurance options for employee staffing:

How Much Does Staffing Insurance Cost?

The average rate our customers pay for workers' compensation under the staffing class codes is based on each $100 of payroll. Each class code is separately rated based on the work performed by the employee. The average cost for a general liability insurance policy is about $2,500.00.

Workers' Comp Costs

  • Work Comp is priced based on payroll
  • Your state and EMR Rating will affect your cost
  • The class of employees staffed can modify rates
  • Premium discounts and policy credits may apply

General Liability Costs

  • GL rates for staffing are based on payroll (rated per $1000)
  • Gross revenue may affect pricing
  • The type of work done matters to underwriters
  • Prior clams and years in business affect pricing
  • SIC codes: 7363-Temp; 7361- Employment Agency
Staffing Agency vs Temp Agency?

Most people refer to staffing agencies as temp agencies and vice versa. Traditionally, a staffing agency was known as an employment placement agency. Employees placed at a customers business are not employees of the staffing company. Their wages and the cost of insurance is paid by the customer and the staffing company receives payment separately for their service.

Temp agencies supply workers to a customers' business for limited periods of times and those employees are not expected to be hired on a permanent basis. Temporary agencies typically pay the placed employees and cover the cost of insurance and taxes. Temp agencies receive more compensation but they have a much higher overhead.
